Next gathering, 6th September. Enjoy the summer break!


                          Welcome to our website

News has reached the group that Ron Ellis, one of our founder members, has sadly passed away recently. His funeral is to be held at St. Wilfrid's Church on Thursday 11th August at 10.30a.m. if anyone wishes to attend. Charles is intending to be there.

Enjoy the summer break - no meetings in August. (except for the committee, who have a zoom meeting on 30th August!)

 About us

We are a small friendly group with an interest and passion in family history. 

We were formed in May 2001 from a short Workers Education Family History Course.

We have  visiting speakers, workshops and outings to enhance our knowledge.  We enjoy sharing our experiences and our family treasures at regular "members-led" sessions.  

We usually finish our meetings with coffee and conversations.

We welcome new members

You do not need to have a family from the Selby district, just an interest in family history.

If you want to pop along for a "taster", we meet most Tuesday mornings in the rear room at Selby Town Hall at 10.00 am.
