If you are about to embark on the popular pastime of discovering your ancestry, or have already started, but have hit a dead-end, then the Badsey History Society has the answer. They are holding an evening for new, nearly new, and even experienced past-finders to discover new branches of 'relatives' on the family tree.

With free access to Ancestry, Find My Past and other family history websites, plus information on War Service Records, and newspaper clippings, every base has been covered for an informative evening, helped by family history experts, your past has never looked so bright.

The evening starts with a series of short informative talks on surnames, military records, subscription websites and newspaper archives. The event is open to all, and if you have a specific query, please contact the Society by the 25th October to allow time for pre-event research.

The Badsey Society Family History Evening takes place at the Wheatsheaf Inn, Badsey, on Friday October 28th at 7.30pm. Further details are available from history@badsey.net.



Aldington poet, Brian Smith, is asking anyone who bought his first book of poetry, "From Down Sands Lane to Cuckoo Bridge" if they would like to sell it back to him for the original purchase price of 5.
The poetry book, the first of two, sold out completely a couple of years ago. Since then Mr. Smith produced a second book of poetry, and it was the production of this second book, "From Packs Meadow to Pear Tree Corner", that led to a renewed interest in the first. 
So Brian is trying to buy back clean copies of the book to supply to waiting customers.
Due to high printing costs for small runs of books it would not be viable for Brian to print extra books. The proceeds from the profit obtained from both books was donated to Badsey School and Badsey Church.
