Our group meets on the first Tuesday of the month from 2.15pm to 4.30pm in Chesham Town Hall. If you are interested or would like to find out more about how to research your Family History please come along, there is no need to book.
We have a variety of members, books and help sheets to get you started. Our speakers cover a wide variety of subjects and we encourage members to tell their own stories as they usually turn out to be the most interesting. In June a favourite returning speaker Tom Doig will talking on the Militia (a change from the advertised programme) The Militia of Great Britain were the principle military reserve forces after the Union in 1801 of the former Kingdom of Great Britain and Kingdom of Ireland. He will also try and date any photographs members may care to bring
If you are just starting out on your research and need help or advice please speak to the Convenors who will introduce you to one of our experienced members who will be more than happy to help, either at the meeting or on a one to one basis. We have a small library and new members information sheets at the meetings.
We usually have speakers at our meetings and occasional members days.
Our website has not been updated for some time however U3a members interested in starting their own Family History will still find a lot of useful information on the Chess Valley U3a Web Site. Look on the left hand side of the page under 'Groups' 'Family History' Follow the instructions.
