Trafford Road Swing Bridge: Hilary Hartigan

We hold many of our meetings in Manchester, at the Manchester Central Library, but our area of interest is much greater than that - Manchester, Salford, Trafford, Tameside and part of Lancashire, roughly what is now Greater Manchester. The Trafford Road Bridge, shown above, links Salford on the left and Trafford on the right with the Manchester ship canal flowing beneath. Add to that the mix of old and new architecture and we have the modern scene - remembering where we came from and looking forward.

Normally we would hope to fill this page with things to do that relate to our local and family history, events at the Library, a family history fair at Stretford, a canal event nearby but, at the time of the writing, we are learning the new art of online meetings and gatherings, of digital conversations on forums and of learning by video. It's all good, it's not going to go away, but we are looking to a time when we can cross that bridge and meet people again at meetings, fairs and cultural events, wherever in Manchester and Lancashire they might be.

We hope you will follow this page often and we shall try to bring you news of upcoming events, be they real or virtual.
