On Tuesday June 22nd, our guest Zoom speaker is Dr. Ann Featherstone from Derbyshire, a retired Manchester University lecturer who has appeared as an expert on Who Do You Think You Are. Her talk will be ‘Storm in a Teashop’ which tells of the waitress strike in 1908 and it has gone down very well with other history groups during this ‘remote’ time.
On Monday July 19th we welcome Natalie Bodle from Ballymena in Northern Ireland. Natalie is another speaker with an excellent pedigree, is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and an expert on Irish ancestry. Her talk will be ‘My Ancestors were Irish-or were they ?’ A good number of us will have Irish ancestors somewhere and Natalie requests that people send any Irish names people may have in their tree and she will make sure she includes them in her talk. Please contact us at if you want to submit names.
