The theme for the next meeting of Randalstown Historical Society is Forebears Rediscovered – a Family History Night. Some of the committee members will be sharing information they have discovered on forgotten Randalstown families and members are also invited to bring along their own family history anecdotes, artefacts or photographs.
As the Society’s new Chairman, Dr Selbert Rainey observed, “it’s the stories that bring family history to life more than just a list of names and dates. It would be great if this evening could uncover some new information”. Tips and pointers for members wanting to undertake their own genealogical research will also be available.
This is the final meeting of the current season and it takes place on Thursday 7 April at 8.00pm in Arches House.
Plans are also in hand for the Society’s annual outing, taking place on Saturday 21 May. The destination will be the Lisburn area to visit the Ulster Aviation Society’s collection and Brookhall Historical Farm. Further information can be obtained from the Secretary, Linda Houston, on 944782874
