Throughout the 4th to the 7th November the Federation of Family History Societies  (FFHS) ran a stall at the Hobbycrafts exhibition at Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre.  The FFHS is an umbrella organisation for all family history societies, being an educational charity which represents, advices and supports the local family history societies.

Bromsgrove's branch chairman, Mike Yegwart, was there on Friday, the 5th November, with Malvern FHS, intoducing visitors to the benefits of joining a society.  As this was a national exhibition many were from the far flung reaches of our island, necessitating a quick look up for their nearest society.  As usual there were the usual "I'm stuck" query, but there were also quite a few adoption type problems, as well.
