The next meeting of the Oxfordshire Family History Society will take place on Monday 25 February 2013. It will be held at the usual venue at Exeter Hall, Oxford Road, Kidlington, Oxford OX5 1AB. Doors open at 7.15pm for coffee, help with both genealogy and computers, and the bookstall.
The subject of the talk at 8.00pm is "Ringing True – The Bells of Trummery and Beyond – 350 Years of an Irish Quaker Family", which will be presented by Bill Jackson.
Bill tells me that during the presentation, he will describe how he came - in retirement - to pull together notes for his children about his mother’s people. However, he found that they had been Friends from the beginnings of Quakerism, and that Friends’ records are so comprehensive that the notes soon turned into a book !
Our speaker Bill Jackson was educated at Campbell College, Belfast and is a Classics graduate of Trinity College, Dublin University. Bill retired to Wheatley after a career with Oxfam, Keele University, the Irish Public Service and the United Nations.
All members, potential members and their guests are welcome.
