Waltham Forest Family History Society
The Waltham Forest Family History Society was founded in 1978 to bring together and to encourage people with an interest in family history and genealogy. We are a small but friendly society that caters for all those with South West Essex ancestry who might live at a distance, and for those who live locally but whose ancestors came from elsewhere.
The Society has
- regular talks on family and local history
- workshops to discuss particular topics
- visits to archives and museums
- twice-yearly journal Roots in the Forest
- collection of magazines and local records
- projects to transcribe MIs and local records
Our March meeting will be a workshop on Writing up your Family History. it is something which few of us do, but most of us have a story or a puzzle we could write a short piece on.
At our April meeting we will have a talk by Sue Paul entitled My Ancestor was a Pirate!
The meeting will start at 8pm.
