March 2017 – Family History can be FUN!


Family History

Do you and your friends find Family History boring?
That’s hardly surprising!
Endless photographs of graves, reams of Pedigree Charts!
Time to change your approach – AND MAKE IT FUN!
Follow Steve’s advice and maybe your ‘victims’
won’t realise what’s happening!
That is until it’s too late and they are hooked too!

ENTRANCE £2 to non-members – TEA or COFFEE INCLUDED
