The Society Projects

The society and its members will undertake research of a historical or genealogical nature, where an extended period of time and effort is required to achieve a result. Such work would not include routine day to day research specific to just one family. Each project will be led by a member to agreed terms of reference. Others are encouraged to provide support.
