  WantageEuropeana2014Alex&AngieOxfordshire Family History Society members (in photo: Angie Trueman and Alex McGahey) attended the Europeana collection day at Wantage on 26 October.

Stories of the adventures of the day from the volunteers will be in our April journal, and the Europeana project is at
