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 in the Town Hall , meetings will be held in Horbury Library from 11.00am to 12.30pm. Our next session will be on Friday 10th May when we will be visiting the Library at the National Coal Mining Museum at Middlestown.
