New for 2022

Assuming that everything goes according to plan, this year...

So many changes over the last 12 months! However, the good news is that we are now accustomed to meeting via Zoom - although we hope that our planned in-person meetings will go ahead as planned. Zoom has allowed us to keep in touch with our society members and visitors via monthly meetings and it has also allowed the Anglo-Scots committee to work as usual, always planning ahead and working around obstacles (otherwise known as 'restrictions'). Hopefully we can keep this page updated with new and exciting events, as yet not possible to imagine with confidence, and articles that inform and entertain. To do that we also need your help, your contributions, your ideas!

Looking forward to our next Anglo Scots meeting

Scottish Records inThe National Archives

At the Manchester Central Library, Audrey Collins of The National Archives, Kew, will tell us about the wealth of Scottish records held at Kew, a vast holding and an important resource to mine in the search for information about our ancestors.

Saturday, 7th May 2022 at 2pm, Anglo Scots: Events - Meetings - Meetings for details.



Articles Wanted!

Short articles, long articles, new research, family stories. Help us to build up a collection of articles of all kinds, with or without images, to add interest and colour to our section of the Journal. More details are available on Anglo Scots: About - Manchester Genealogist .
