I mentioned recently that our President, Hugh Kearsey, has been awarded an SoG Certificate of Recognition “for actively ensuring a wider availability of materials enabling others to pursue family history in Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire”.
The presentation is to be made by Colin Chapman, Chairman of the Fellows of the SoG, during the OFHS Open Day at Woodstock this coming Saturday, 5 October, at 11:30am — with representatives of both Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire FHS present — do come if you can!
Details of the day are at http://www.ofhs.org.uk/OpenDay.html
With regard to Open Day itself, there are several stalls new to the event this year, and there will be plenty of advisors as well as experts on wills, DNA and Oxfordshire photographs.

Oxfordshire Family History Society is looking forward to Open Day on October 5th at Woodstock, and to welcoming both members and non-members.
10am – 4pm
Saturday 5th October 2013
The Marlborough School, Shipton Road, Woodstock OX20 1LP

It should be an excellent day – there will be stands with family history societies, military & museum groups, vendors of family history software, photographic restorers, Oxfordshire History Centre (with their photographic expert), and lots more.
OFHS will have plenty of advisors happy to search our resources for visitors – and we’ll have specialists on hand on our wills and our DNA projects.
We’ll have our full range of parish register transcript & MI CDs on sale, and bring our bookstall.
It’s a fully level venue, with plenty of car parking, and there’ll be light refreshments on sale.

Put the date in your diary! Maybe arrange to meet a friend there!
There’ll be plenty of interest even if your interests aren’t in Oxfordshire.
Chairman, Oxfordshire FHS
