The AGM will take place on Saturday the 2nd November 2019. Since this is the fiftieth anniversary of the Family History Society of Cheshire the executive committee is hoping to make this an extended celebratory event.

There is ample free parking. The nearest railway station is Northwich, a 30-minute walk.

The meeting will be held in the Thompson Suite; this is upstairs in the Museum and a lift is available.
