Society Branches

Meetings are held at seven centres around the county; Chippenham, Devizes, Malmesbury, Salisbury, Swindon, Trowbridge and Westbury. These meetings are open to all: if you live in the area or are just visiting why not pop in and discuss any family history related problems or just enjoy the evening?

We regret that our meetings have been cancelled until further notice, and we will confirm future programmes when known.
