The committee has decided with regret that the Library Help Sessions at the above locations will cease at the end of June. Unfortunately, the numbers attending at these locations no longer make them viable. We are willing to try again if sufficient people show interest.
Weston Library Help Sessions
These are continuing to be held from 2.00pm until 3.30pm each Saturday at the North Somerset Studies Library in Weston-super-Mare Town Hall. This library contains fiche of parish records for North Somerset, local newspapers on film, maps, street directories, Electoral Rolls and many other interesting local history books and files of information about people and places in the area including Brian Austin’s Family Trees of local families. For those who are not researching local families we have free access to Ancestry and other useful sites via the Library’s computers. You do not have to be a member to come to these sessions and benefit from the expertise of our volunteers.
The North Somerset Archivist's visit to Weston Library on Thursday 1st March was postponed, due to the weather. It has now been rearranged for Thursday 15th March. Please contact Somerset Archives and Local Studies with any queries or if you want any documents brought to Weston.

We are in the process of setting up a Facebook page and group for the Society. One of our committee members, Lorna Gibson has agreed to become our Social Media Administrator, and will look after the group. We will, however, need one or two people to assist her. If you know about Facebook and would like to help, please get in touch via the website.
