Interested in family history and would like to be part of a community of fellow family history detectives? Come and join us for our monthly meeting where we'll discuss our current sticking points and challenges, sharing tips and stories. This is a collaborative learning event and you will be asked to turn on cameras and microphones and contribute in smaller breakout rooms as we share our experiences.
In March, as it's Women's History Month, we are asking you to bring along a story to share about an inspiring woman that you've discovered from researching your family tree.

Meet the Host, Rosemary
Born and brought up in Newport, South Wales, Rosemary trained as a primary school music teacher. She taught in schools across Greater London until retiring four years ago.
Rosemary has been researching her family history since 1982 and on retirement became a volunteer at both the Society of Genealogists and The National Archives. Other interests are reading - she is a member of the Mirthy Book Club -and dancing. Rosemary particularly enjoys Mirthy's Belly Dancing Workshops!
Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)
Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
