Who Do You Think You Are?

A Cautionary Tale

A photo of a table top tomb in the churchyard of St George’s Church, Cam, near Dursley, Glos. The carving on it shows a farmer out ploughing; it also shows a chain coming loose and flying through the air which is what killed him.
The local story goes that the farmer was ploughing on a Sunday and so got what was coming to him by doing so! The tomb is dated 1685.

Family History

  • The group has now resumed on line. We meet on line using the Zoom software, as scheduled on the Third Monday of the month until we can meet in person.

  • The aim is to discuss our own, recent Family findings, and help each other with advice and/or suggestions
  • We are a relatively small group, Some of us have progressed in our searches while others are relative beginners. We discuss what we have achieved, with any interesting finds and then members outline problems and we endeavour to suggest ways forward. We try to help those members who have not progressed far and are looking for advice on how to proceed. Whilst we discuss the use of computers and the internet, it is not the main feature of our meetings. We do sometimes go into the social history side, and talk about types of work, clothes and migration. We love to see old Family Photos.
    DNA has featured in our discussions recently.
    We continue to be challenged and rewarded in equal measure.
  • We are happy to welcome new members.
