Next Meeting

Our next meeting will be held on Thursday 21st July 2016 at Montague Hall, Hounslow. Doors open at 7.00 pm. This is our Open meeting, members and non-members welcome. Ad-hoc with members contributing short pieces. The aim is to focus on 'Family Health' but all contributions are welcome.

The Hounslow clinics

Providing support to existing and prospective members to research their family history is at the core of what our Society aims to do.
