An interesting programme has been lined up for this year’s London Open Day and AGM on Saturday 11 May.
The Open Day will follow a similar format to last year’s successful event, and will be held at the same location (details below), but we will also have a bookstall offering a selection of useful genealogical books that have become surplus to our Library’s requirements.
Here is the programme:
|10:30||:||Registration, coffee and biscuits|
|11:00||:||Tracking the Irish with FamilySearch – It’s Never been Better, with Sharon Hintze, director of the London Family History Centre.|
|12:00||:||Community Genealogy and Historic Graveyard Surveys in Ireland, with John Tierney, director of the Historic Graves Project in Ireland.|
|14:00||:||IGRS AGM (members only)|
|Cost||:||For the morning & lunch: £25 members; £30 non-members. The AGM is free, but is open only to members.|

Venue : 34 Chepstow Villas, Bayswater, London W11
Directions : The nearest Underground station is Notting Hill Gate. Emerging from Notting Hill Gate Tube Station follow the crowds to the right, heading for Portobello Road Market – this is well signposted. Follow crowds down the top end of Portobello Road (no antique stalls here). Chepstow Villas crosses Portobello Road just before you get into the Antique market proper. Turn right into Chepstow Villas and just one block down, on a corner on your left, you will notice a very large prominent red brick former convent – 34 Chepstow Villas is just past this building.
