The Sale Group meet on the second Wednesday of the month, starting at 7.30pm for an 8.00pm talk. We meet at Trinity Methodist Church, Trinity Road, Sale M33 3ED
Visitors are always welcome and there is free parking in the local streets, which is recommended as the church car park gets very congested. We charge £2 for members of the FHSC and £2.50 for visitors. This charge includes light refreshments. We are a friendly group and welcome visitors.
We try to arrange speakers on a wide range of topics - from specific family history research to more general local and social history topics. Please click Events for our Program for 2019. At each meeting we also have a family history bookstall run by our Group Leader David Johnson. David has a large selection of books and maps for the family historian, more than you would find in a bookshop. Talks last about an hour giving time to chat to other members afterwards and to look through and maybe purchase books from David.
We are a new group within Family History Society of Cheshire, starting only in January 2017. Many of our members are experienced family historians who have previously belonged to other groups, alongside some new members. We are always pleased to help anyone get started if they are new to Family History.
In July 2017 we had no meeting but went on a visit to the Police Museum and Archives at Newton Street, Manchester. Those of us who went found it very interesting and enjoyable. We hope that we can arrange a visit each year to a place of social, local or family history interest. In July 2018 we visited Manchester Central Library for a very interesting guided tour of resources for Family historians. This year a visit to The John Rylands Library on Deansgate, Manchester has been planned for May.
