South Tyneside September 2016 Meeting Report
« on: October 07, 2016, 03:53:38 PM »
South Tyneside commenced the 2016/17 season of branch meetings on Wednesday 21st September by holding a Members Forum, with special help for beginners. 

The meeting was attended by members and a visitor who brought along a wealth of memorabilia relating to an ancestor who fought in both the Boer War and WW1, and who was given the freedom of the Borough.  'Brick Walls' were the other subjects discussed such as missing baptisms, wills and merchant navy records.

The next meeting is to be held on the 19th October, which will be a film presentation by Dorothy Hall from North East War Memorials Project entitled 'Always Remembered'.   All members and guests are most welcome to attend.
