familyTree500


Researching is only half the battle - writing it up so that others will want to read it is the other. Kathy Chater suggests ways in which to present research in an interesting way. Followed by Aylesbury - AGM which offers the chance for you to help shape the furtre of your society.

Saturday 18th May 1.30pm

At Turnfurlong Junior School, Turnfurlong Lane, Aylesbury, Bucks., HP21 7PL. See Central Branch for details & charges.

The Central Branch meetings are held monthly, normally on the third Saturday of the month. From September 2017 we are meeting at Turnfurlong Junior School, Turnfurlong Lane, Aylesbury, Bucks., HP21 7PL.

There is normally a charge of £4 for non-members and £2 for members. Refreshments extra.


Many of us have old family photographs, but sometimes it can be frustratingly difficult to guess the identity of the sitter. A knowledge of the way photography and fashions changed can narrow down the date at which a photograph is likely to have been taken. In the same way that fashions change, so do military uniforms.
But unlike fashions, uniforms changed at set dates and once you know the basics you can start identifying your own. Graham hopes you'll let him help you with this 'dark art', and invites you bring along your own photographs for identification and dating. They must be originals, though, which to the trained eye can hold a mass of information. He'll do his best from a very high resolution scan, but really, you need to find that original.

 

This is out first talk at the new Aylesbury venue. Turnfurlong Junior School see Central Branch for the map and other details.
