Some pictures taken at the Solihull Caribbean Family History Group Exhibition held October 2010.
The exhibition and Workshop day was a success – a great success – and all those involved essentially found it rewarding. As a first event – a well done all round! At the meeting on Saturday 27th November where we did a review, it was said by some present that we should not have been having a review, but rather having a celebration!
Part of Southwark Black History Month, two sessions introducing family research techniques. The sessions will demonstrate the use of relevant websites and advise on which centres to visit. There will be time for everyone to start searching, there will be documents on display for handling, and also plenty of group discussion. One of the discussion topics will be ‘oral tradition versus written records’.
Thursday 21st October 4.30 – 6.30: John Harvard Library
Saturday 23rd October 2.00 – 4.00: Peckham Library.
Booking details will be supplied nearer the time.
Our aim for October 2010 Black History Month in Solihull is to produce an exhibition that covers the basics, engages the interest of those seeking to do Caribbean Family History research and providing ‘workshop’ opportunities to actually start and or extend their research/family tree on the day.
We want to do something that is well received and can be repeated and grow from year to year. Wouldn’t it be great if in a few years we all could be at the Who Do You Think You Are? family history show in 2011 in London manning a stand!?
If any of you are free to visit on the 31st of October then enter it in your diaries and come along.
Hopefully we’ll see you there.
