Our Newsletter Index has now been updated to include Issue 94 released in March 2019.
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.
Our 2019 syllabus has been updated and please remember our AGM on 6th April if you can make it.
The Pedigree Chart Surname Index has been updated to 29 January 2019

We always welcome offers of help from our members. Whether you would like to meet visitors in the Centre or work behind the scenes, helping with publications, or research or graveyard recording – or whatever your particular interest is, we will be pleased to see you. You do not need to be tied down to coming every week or even every month. Whatever time you can offer will be valued.
Under the RESOURCES section of the website we have created a new section being an index of all the Society’s Newsletters. We hope you find this useful.
Thanks to Alverie Weighill for creating the index of our first 91 issues.
