Updates & Additions to the Branch Pages HERE

Details of the talk and how you can register are now on the Meetings Page along with links to some help sheets which we hope will help the meeting to run smoothly!

Normally, we would be able to include information about meetings, talks, gatherings, Family History Fairs, special events at Manchester Central Library, Gallery Oldham and so much more. HOWEVER, when our lives start to return to some sort of normality, we will bring you all the news of what's going on in our district.

Our monthly Oldham & District newsletter (no need to be a member) also keeps us up to date with articles, a postbag, news of 'what's on', and much more. You can sign up to receive a monthly digital copy (to read on-line or download) or you can visit the Newsletter Archives to 'pick and mix'! Newsletter.
