Back in April this year I wrote about the forthcoming Cambridgeshire Family History Fair that was planned for 26th October. It felt a long way off, but now it’s almost upon us, and the Cambridgeshire Family History Society appear to have the preparations and great topics all lined up.

Announced on the Society’s Facebook timeline, the list of guest speakers consists of experts in local history and wider research methods.

The sessions are listed as:

  • War Memorials – Martin Edwards
  • 200 Years of Civil Registration – Louisa Glover
  • Computer Research – Helen Tarbox
  • Identifying & Dating Victorian Photos – Tom Doig
  • Newspapers – Mike Petty
  • Using The National Archives – Simon Fowler
  • 20th Century Research – Ian Waller

As mentioned in an earlier post, the event is free to attend, although the sessions do have a small fee (payable/bookable on the day).

The Fair is on 26th October 2013, 10am – 4pm, at Girton Glebe School. Check the Society’s website for the latest information about what’s on, and travel/parking information.
