WMFHS Advice Sessions

The Society runs a programme of Family History Advice sessions, to which anyone is welcome, whether new to family history research or not, and whether a member of the Society or not.

At an Advice session an experienced member of our Society will spend about 45 minutes with you to advise you on possible ways to move forward with your family history research.

As of February 2017, however, the programme is in a state of transition. Thus far all sessions have been held at Hounslow Library in the Treaty Centre, but the library is due to be transferred to Hounslow's Civic Centre (see the map) during April/May. We are unsure what facilities the library at the Civic Centre may be able to provide, and hence we are exploring other options, particularly to run the advice sessions from Feltham Library.

This page will be updated once details are confirmed, but it looks like the sessions from May onwards will be held at Feltham.

It is preferable that you book youself into a time slot, so that we can avoid trying to help two visitors at the same time. Please send an email to the Advice Session Coordinator to tell us when you would like to visit, and what you would most like to achieve.

This is the planned schedule of Advice sessions. The days are all third Saturdays of the month.
