Caithness Family History Society's first talk of 2019
6th January 2019
Caithness Family History Society's first talk of the New Year will be in a new venue; Thurso Library.
The speaker will be Caitlin Morrison, a history teacher at Wick High School.
She, along with other staff and pupils, researched all the First World War men who are named on Wick War Memorial.
A wonderful book entitled They Never Returned is the result of their efforts. It includes photographs of many of those mentioned, along with details of their family and military lives.
The meeting will take place in Thurso Library, Davidson's Lane, Thurso at 7pm on Wednesday 9th January and all are welcome to attend.
Family history enthusiasts from across Scotland and beyond will gather in Caithness this month for a major one-day conference. Wick's Pulteney Centre Saturday is the venue on Saturday, April 27th for the annual conference of the Scottish Association of Family History Societies (SAFHS) under the title of Northern Roots.
CAITHNESS FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY (Scottish Registered Charity No. SC029848) has published 8 books which can help with family history research.
After its winter break, Caithness Family History Society has restarted its "help" sessions for those who would like to research their family history, or need advice on how to continue. If you are interested, go along to the CFHS office in Caithness Horizons, Old Town Hall, Thurso, between 2pm and 4pm on any Saturday afternoon or on the last Wednesday afternoon of any month.
Caithness Family History Society volunteers, who man our office in Caithness Horizons, Thurso, on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons between 2 and 4, will be having a break in December and January. We will be happy to see you again in February.
