Throughout the year, we run a stall at selected Family History Society Open Days, Regional Fairs, and other major events. We also man a stall at other local events in Gwent and Glamorgan, such as the Brecon Mountain Railway Weekend. This is because we have an enthusiastic small band of committee members and others, who are willing to give up their Saturdays for the Society.

If you want to refer to a more comprehensive list of all the events in the coming months, visit GENEVA web-site (the joint GENUKI and FFHS diary of GENealogical EVents and Activities) which also includes links to find out more details of the events concerned. The FHS Open Days normally run from 10.00am until 4.00pm. If you visit any of those we’re attending, come up to our stall and introduce yourself.

The following table shows those events we already plan to attend in 2014, together with other major events (shown in italics) where our attendance isn’t possible. Links are provided where available, for you to find out more details about the event:
