Notice of AGM

6th April 2019. Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of Dumfries & Galloway Family History Society will be held at St Ninian’s Church Hall, Whitepark Road, Castle Douglas DG7 1EX on Saturday 6th April 2019 at 2:15pm.

The agenda will include the following motion:
Eva Adamson proposes that the word “heraldry” be removed from item 3a of our Constitution as none of our volunteers are trained in this aspect of family history. In consequence, item 3a will now read “encourage the study of genealogy and local history”.

The Secretary shall receive nominations for Office Bearers and Council Members not less than 21 days prior to the AGM. Likewise anyone wishing to include items for the Agenda should contact the Secretary 21 days prior to the Annual General Meeting.
