South Tyneside October Meeting Report
« on: November 09, 2015, 01:38:46 PM »
The 21st October saw the second of our meetings to be held at the new time of 1.30pm at St Hilda's Church, South Shields.  Members were in attendance to hear Wendy Stafford's talk entitled 'A Scottish Soldier in Wellington's Army'.  Not only did Wendy give an in-depth insight into the life and times of her ancestor and his involvement in the Battle of Waterloo, but her presentation illustrated that, through exacting research, just how much information can be gleaned from one small snippet of information contained in a certificate.

An excellent talk which was followed by tea and scones at the Customs House.  Well recommended!

The next South Tyneside Branch Meeting is to be held on Wednesday 18th November at 1.30pm at St Hilda's Church, when the speaker is Linda King talking on the subject of 'North East Customs and Superstitions'.  All are welcome
