What's On - Forthcoming Events

We warmly invite you to attend talks whether you are a member or not. Doors open at 2pm. The meeting begins at 2.30pm.
There is no admission charge but donations are welcome.
We'll have a range of family history publications available to buy.
Light refreshments (donation expected) available after the talks.
If you have a problem with your family history, please discuss it (no charge) with one of our volunteers.
Except where otherwise indicated, meetings are held in St. Peterís (Scottish Episcopal) Church Hall, Parsonage Road, Galashiels, TD1 3HS (inside the church grounds.)
See this map for directions.
If you're coming by bus, ask for the St Peter's School (Galashiels) bus stop; the Church Hall is less than 2 minutes walk.
The Church Hall is about 12 minutes walk from our Archive and about 16 minutes walk from the Bus Station or the Railway Station.

Speakers at meetings occasionally need to be changed at the last minute, due to circumstances beyond our control.
