Family History

Family History 1 - Finding Your Roots

Members undertake individual family history research and need to be computer literate, in order to take advantage of the many on-line resources for family history and computerised sources at centres such as the National Archives at Kew.

Monthly on Wednesdays 2.30pm - 4.00pm. Southfields.

Leader's contact details (Merton U3A Members only)

 Family History 2

A self help group of individuals interested in finding out about their ancestors. Whilst it is possible to undertake research without a computer, it is much easier these days if one can get on-line in order to take advantage of the ever increasing resources available via the internet, so computer literacy is almost essential. Some members of the group are in the early stages of research but the group leader and at least one other member of the group have been investigating their own family histories for many years so hopefully can help members avoid some of the pitfalls and dead-ends which we inevitably encounter.

Monthly on Thursday from 2.00-4.00pm, Cannon Hill area, unrestricted parking. 164 bus from Wimbledon/ Morden (St. James Church) or 413 from Morden/ Sutton (Northway or Cherrywood Lane).

 Sharing Your Family History

An experienced family historian and creative writing teacher is leading a group aimed at those who have already researched their family history but would like support in presenting their discoveries in a style and format that can easily be shared with others and that will interest and engage its readers. Group members are coached towards this within a collaborative learning environment.

First Wednesday of every month, throughout the year. 10.00am - 12.00noon. West Wimbledon, buses 200 & 57. Easy parking.
