'Researching your Family Tree' was the topic of Saturday’s meeting which proved very popular, reflecting no doubt the interest in this fascinating subject. We were pleased to welcome members of the Dyfed Family History Society, Rosalie Lilwall, Jean Williams, Barbara Chester and Stella Donovan.
So, how to get started? This was what Rosalie Lilwall came to talk to us about; an introduction aimed to inspire people l on how to go about our search and inform us of the help we can call upon along the way.
Rosalie is Chairman of both the Dyfed Family History Society as well as the Haverfordwest Branch this year. I asked her about her interest in family history and about the work of the Society. “The search for our family origins” said Rosalie, “has been called the fastest growing leisure activity and membership of the Dyfed Family History Society is evidence of this. We now have about 1,200 members."
