committee has been concerned for some time over the decreasing number
of members who attend our monthly meetings. A survey of the 90 members
who live within a 50 mile radius of Peterborough produced a 61% response.
Most wanted the programme to concentrate on basic and generic family
history topics as opposed to local/social history. The preferred format
was a talk followed by a workshop looking at associated research techniques.
committee is now organising the July to December programme with these
comments in mind and the website will be updated as soon the programme
