Buckinghamshire Family History Society Open Day 2016

From Buckinghamshire Family History Society (www.bucksfhs.org.uk)

Buckinghamshire Family History Society Open Day 2016

Will take place in 2016 on Saturday 23rd July, from 10am to 4pm at The Grange School, Wendover Way, Aylesbury HP21 7NH.

This is Buckinghamshire's major family history event and the day when all of the Society's research libraries will be available in one place, including our Buckinghamshire names database, containing well over five million entries. Let us help you track down that elusive ancestor.

Parish register transcripts and other Society publications will be on sale, and there will be lots of help and advice from friendly, experienced family historians.

It's also your opportunity to talk to guest family history societies from around the country. Alongside them will be archives, museums, local history groups and the customary range of suppliers of maps, books, software, archival materials and other services.

Entry is free, and tea and coffee will be available, so why not bring a packed lunch and make a day of it.

Free parking is available at the venue, or by bus from Aylesbury bus station take Arriva service 50 towards Wendover, alighting on Wendover Road opposite Chaucer Drive, about eight minutes walk.

From about Easter we'll be updating our website to list all the organizations attending. Check out it out regularly.
