RTFHS Society Day and AGM



Time: 10am until 4pm
Location: The Trinity Centre, Church Hill, Mill Street, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands B72 1TF

The RTFHS Society Day and AGM takes place in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, on Saturday 13 May 2017. It’s our first event in the Birmingham area so we hope to see many new faces from within our membership locally, as well as old friends. And remember: RTFHS events are free for RTFHS members.

And it’s an event you won’t want to miss. That’s because we’ll be joined by:

  • Find My Past’s genealogy expert Alex Cox who will be telling us about getting the best from online newspapers for family history research
  • Steven Knight, the creator of the BBC drama series Peaky Blinders who will be talking about his canal boat ancestors
  • Ted Rudge, local historian and author, who will introduce us to the Romany Gypsy families who made Black Patch their home in times past

Plus there will be:

  • The RTFHS bookstall
  • Research help desk
  • Displays about local Romany families researched by RTFHS member and author Josie Tombs
  • And plenty of chances to chat and share your family history research with other RTFHS members and friends
Look out for the booking form in your March 2017 edition of Romany Routes. And see you there.
