**SPECIAL MEETING on Wednesday 13th January – Myko Clelland is from www.findmypast.co.uk. Following the launch of this most exciting resource, Myko is touring the country to tell family historians all about the 1939 Register. Everyone was registered in order to have an Identity Card and Ration Book. A lot of very valuable information is to be found here and, with the loss of the 1931 census and no census in 1941, this register is going to help us to bridge some big gaps in our research! This meeting is open to everyone, and we hope that members of our neighbouring societies might like to join us for this enlightening talk.
Please note: There is a £2.00 admission fee for non-members, refunded if joining on the night. Members of the Society may be asked to produce Membership Cards before entry into the Meeting.
