Interested in finding your family's past? We are a family history group covering the Bromsgrove and Stourbridge areas, with links to many local and family history researchers in Worcestershire and across the Midlands.
Dating Old Photographs
Our Christmas meeting will be an opportunity for you to bring your old photographs that you may find difficult to identify the date when the photograph was taken.
Bring along your pre-World War 2 photographs and we aim - by running twin digital projectors – to try to identify features that may enable a date to be assigned to each photograph.
We are starting at 7.30pm for those who wish to bring their photographs and have them scanned. Otherwise 7.45pm as usual.
Tea, coffee and Christmas fayre will be served!

We are pleased to announce another new resource on this site: the Bromsgrove Apprenticeships Index. This index lists around 1500 appenticeships entered into with employers/masters within the Bromsgrove jurisdiction between 1637 and 1813.
As part of the commemorations for the First World War, in 2014 Bromsgrove Branch will be relaying information from Remember the Fallen, a project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, to catalogue Worcestershire soldiers from WWI.
The project covers both casualties and those who served and returned, whose names are commemorated primarily on war memorials and rolls of honour in Worcestershire and some in surrounding counties. You can search the memorials here: http://www.rememberthefallen.co.uk/Memorials/ListMemorials
