Memories and Memory - how good are yours ?

The first meeting of our new programme is this Sunday, 29th September, at 2.30pm in the Corn Exchange & Ormiston Institute, Market Square, Melrose, TD6 0PN (see map) when Anne Reid of SpeakingLives will give a talk titled 'Memories and Memory - how good are yours ?'

Anne is an oral historian who has travelled all over the UK helping folk record their family histories and life stories. She will share anecdotes and tips about how to find the missing pieces and record the stories behind your family tree.

Often we rely on written detail and photographs while the memories of those around us may be the real key to unlocking the tree for future generations. Come to the meeting and gain a fascinating insight into the process for recording the stories behind your family tree.

I warmly invite you to attend the talk whether you are a member or not.

Doors open at 2pm; the meeting begins at 2.30pm.
There is no admission charge.

We'll have a range of family history publications available to buy, and there’ll be light refreshments available after the talk (donation expected).

If you have a problem with your family history, please discuss it (no charge) with one of our volunteers.

Speakers at meetings occasionally need to be changed at the last minute, due to circumstances beyond our control.
