Our Open Day

Our Open Day gives us the chance to meet members from all over the country, and indeed all over the World, who come to visit it. It also gives you, the researchers, the chance to view the stands of each of our branches, of other Family History Societies and organisations from far afield, and of booksellers, specialist printers and software retailers and many, many others. Our thanks go out to all those who support the event each year and continue to make it such a success.

Our Open Day will be on Saturday 14th June  10am to 3pm at Rougemont School, Llantarnam Hall, Malpas Road, Newport NP20 6QB.

Just to give you an idea of how good the venue is here are some photographs of last year



As you can see the hall is very large so everyone has plenty of room to get around. Wheelchair access is excellent. There will be refreshments available but these will be served from a different building.

In the second picture our Treasurer, who also happens to be the Open Day organiser, was hard at work helping people with their research.

Here is the list of organisations and commercial enterprises that will be present.
