Oxfordshire Family History Society fair October 1st

Oxfordshire Family History Society ( is holding a Family History Fair at Woodstock on Saturday 1st October 2016. From its website:

Our 2016 Family History Fair will again be held at The Marlborough School just outside Woodstock.

As usual it will run from 10am to 4pm.

This venue has a generous flat exhibition area and ample car parking. The accessibility has been appreciated, and remarked upon, by both exhibitors and visitors alike.

The Family History Fair will feature the usual assortment of visiting Societies, publishers, dealers in second hand books and postcards, and the like. The stands will be spread across both the Marlborough Enterprise Centre (MEC) Hall and the adjoining Sports Hall.

Our own Society's range of transcripts and search services will be available for consultation, whilst we will also be manning a beginners' helpdesk. Additionally, there will be computing advice on such things as which genealogical software package to choose, and the use of the internet in family history.

Please visit this page regularly (or fill in the box at the foot of the page to be notified by email when changes are made) as we confirm all the services and stalls that will be on offer to further your family history research.

A range of delicious hot and cold food, cakes and teas/coffees etc, will again be provided by Wendy of Good Food Catering which received many compliments at the 2015 fair!

Free on-site parking and free admission to the Fair, don't miss it!
