Our newsletter “Aa the Claick” – a local phrase meaning ‘all the recent news or gossip’ – is produced by our Editor and has traditionally been distributed quarterly.  The Newsletter contains news regarding the Society and also very interesting and informative articles, many of which have been provided by our Members.

 Send us an Article


The Editor is always delighted to receive articles for publication in the newsletter.  For example, it could be a story about your research, or findings, a visit to discover your roots, or even a plea for help to break down your brick wall.  If you would like to submit an article please contact the Editor.

Open Evenings 2016crew17

The Society holds five Open Meetings a year.  Everyone is welcome, members and non-members.  They usually consist of an illustrated talk followed by an opportunity to mingle and chat.  Occasionally we organise a visit to a local Archive or Museum.
