Members' Meeting February 9th video
published by Jenny Towey on Thu, 10/02/2022 - 11:40

It is with regret that I have to inform you that - due to technical difficulties - we were unable to live stream or record yesterday's talk on DNA for Family History.

We desperately need a couple of people to help us out with the technical side of streaming and recording talks - offers of help are very welcome.

Dorset FHS Family Day - 21 March
published by Pat Hase on Wed, 11/03/2020 - 12:14

From the Dorset FHS:

"The Dorset Family History Society has reluctantly made the decision to cancel the Family History Day on Saturday 21st March 2020. This is out of consideration for the health and well being of our volunteers, exhibitors, speakers and potential visitors because of the Coronavirus.

The Family History Day was going to be held at Parkstone Grammar School, Sopers Lane, Poole and we also didn’t want to be responsible for potentially bringing the virus onto the school premises.

Please regularly check the society’s website at https://www.dorsetfhs.org.uk/events-act…/family-history-day/ for future events which will be organised as soon as we feel it is safe to do so."
