Meetings are open to all members of the Family History Society of Cheshire and visitors are always very welcome. There is an entry charge of £1.50 for members and £2.00 for visitors.

Most meetings feature a speaker on an aspect of family history or local interest. As well as a talk, there is a family history help desk and the opportunity to discuss family history topics with other members. Many members have particular areas of knowledge on family history or experience with using computers and the internet for family history. There is also a raffle and tea, coffee and biscuits are available free of charge at the end of the meeting.

From time to time the group hosts a bookstall run by the Family History Society of Cheshire and arranges visits to places of local or historical interest.

We also run two family history help desks. The help desk at the Chester History and Heritage Centre previously at St Michael's Church in Bridge Street, Chester, is now at the Grosvenor Museum in Grosvenor Street, Chester CH1 2DD. Opening times are 10.30 am to 12.30 pm and 1.30 pm to 4.00 pm on Tuesdays and Fridays.  There is also a help desk at the Library at Storyhouse from 10 am to 12 noon on Tuesdays.

So, if you are a newcomer to family history or are looking for some local knowledge or have run up against a brickwall or would like some help on a computing or internet aspect of family history, just ask. There is always somebody who would be pleased to help.
