OSSETT LOCAL AND FAMILY HISTORY NETWORK
The network meets monthly with the aim of bringing together both beginners and more experienced local and family historians in order to exchange advice and information. Meetings are held on the second Friday of each month, usually in Ossett Library. However, as the Library is currently in temporary premises, meetings will be held in Horbury Library from 11.00am to 12.30pm. The next meeting will be on Friday 11th August when we will be looking at adoption records. There will be no meeting in September.
