Family History Research

Ilkeston u3a Family History Group meet on the second Thursday of
each month between 2-4 pm at Ilkeston Fire Station.
We are a large group with a wide spectrum of experience, from
absolute beginners just starting out on this absorbing pastime,
through to those with many years research experience under their
belt.
Our inaugural meeting was on 12th May 2022, so we are still a
very new group. Our first meeting was very much about discussing
where we were all at with our research, and what we wanted from
the group.
In June we enjoyed a very interesting talk over Zoom about
familysearch.org the largest free genealogy research website in
the world.
A programme of topics may evolve as time goes by but for now the
members are eager to explore more of the free websites at our
own pace, sharing our research methods, findings, and pitfalls.
