Atltrincham Day

Here are the details of the Warburton Day on Saturday September 9th. I am looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible. The introduction of a couple of talks with Q&A sessions will hopefully add interest, and give me feedback on the nature and frequency of future events.

Warburton Event in London – August 23rd

It is jus a week now until the Warburton Event in London. It is being held in conjunction with a Family History Day for the members of New Horizons, our hosts for the day.

In that context my talks on Family History in the morning, and DNA and Family History in the afternoon, will be aimed at a general audience, but all my examples and stories will be based on my experiences with the Warburton One Name Study. I will also have lots of study outputs, including clan family trees, DNA charts, Newsletters, and materials on famous Warburtons that you can browse at your leisure.

There will also be computers available for research.

I hope to see some of you there, especially if Altrincham event in September is too far for you. It will be a chance to meet and discuss matters of mutual interest.

For information about the venue, including directions please use the following link to the New Horizons website.
