Family History Fair - Saturday 4 October 2014

Our 2014 Family History Fair will again be held at The Marlborough School just outside Woodstock.

As usual it will run from 10am to 4pm.

This venue has a generous flat exhibition area and ample car parking. The accessibility has been appreciated, and remarked upon, by both exhibitors and visitors alike.

The Marlborough School web site

The Family History Fair will feature the usual assortment of visiting Societies, publishers, dealers in second hand books and postcards, and the like. Our own Society's range of transcripts and search services will be available for consultation, whilst we will also be manning a beginners' helpdesk. Additionally, there will be computing demonstrations, which will give advice on such things as which genealogical software package to choose, and the use of the internet in family history.

The stands will be spread across both the Marlborough Enterprise Centre (MEC) Hall and the adjoining Sports Hall.

Admission to the Family History Fair is free, as is the on-site car park.
