On Saturday 4 May 2013, the annual Open Day of the Gloucestershire FHS takes place. I'm delighted to report that Oxfordshire FHS will have it's usual stall at this Open Day, when we will be selling our DVDs and CDs, as well as a selection of books from the bookstall. In addition, we will have our "Search Services" available on computer, featuring an array of Oxfordshire and North Berkshire indexes to censuses, baptism registers, marriage registers, burial registers and monumental inscriptions.
Those researchers wishing to plan their visit to our stall in advance can view our resources on the following webpages :-

A particular highlight is likely to be a talk to be given by Martin Davies of "Gloucester Rugby Heritage" entitled :-
They played for Gloucester and fought for their Country in the Great War, 1914-18
An interesting subject, and an excellent speaker !
