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.
