Not a lot happening in the coming week as regards local & family history events. Here are the ones of which I am aware...
  • Saturday 7th April - Sherborne Book Fair;
  • Postcard Fairs at Rochester (6th), Bristol (7th), Guildford (7th), Powick (7th) and Llandudno (7th) - see here. Please contact organisers beforehand if travelling a long way.
  • Advance warning of the Archives: Use Them or Lose Them conference at Croydon on 28th April;
  • Series of special days/events lined up at Angus Archives (thanks to BritishGENES blog);
  • And you may also wish to make plans for the next GOONS seminar on the subject of the 'Industrial Revolution' at Ironbridge on 19th May - see here.
