Reasons for Joining

You may be surprised to know that local history is abuzz with new discoveries. These are made by people interested in their own family, a house or street, or just generally curious about the past.  Joining gives you access to the sources you will need to delve into, help when you encounter a problem, and an appreciation of how your own particular interest fits in with the general picture.

Members of the group each have a research project which they are pursuing, and as they are completed the group publishes the results in an issue of our Proceedings or as a separate work.

We meet regularly on Tuesday afternoon (2.00 pm to 4.30 pm) at Sutton Coldfield Library, when members come as frequently as they choose and continue with their research project. Occasionally, the group holds  field trips, visits to places of local interest and public lectures. Members receive regular newsletters, updates by email, and a free copy of Proceedings when published.
