This group is for anyone interested in discussions about local and family history, determined by the members of the group on the issues arising from their investigations.
Over the last year those attending the group have begun to concentrate on a collective project researching the development of housing in Hornsey in the late 19th and early 20th century. This began by researching the occupants a few houses in the street where they lived, and has now expanded to explore different types of dwellings in a variety of streets. It now involves detailed work on the history of streets and the families that lived in them.
If you are new to local and family history research the group is very supportive and will be able to help and give you excellent advice.
If you are interested in the people and places of the past and would like to join the group to participate in the projects or to just listen and ask questions in the discussion please get in touch by completing the form below.
