Fife Family History Society had a busy stall at the SAFHS Conference in New Lanark on April 23rd. Andrew Campbell and Dave Reid helping visitors.
Our Chairman managed a little "Family History Matchmaking" both these visitors came to our stand independently and both were researching their Lumsden family. Hugh introduced them and they discovered they were related - albeit abt 200 years ago!
Lanark FHS had got some good artwork for the tables. Andrew Campbell, Dave Reid(just!) and Frances Black who along with Hugh Hoffman provided help to visitors to the Fife FHS Stall
Three of our members attended Lanark Family History Fair where we had a table. Our Secretary Arlene, Treasurer Roddy and Member Secretary Frances. This was as always a very busy Fair and we had lots of visitors to our stand with a variety of "Fife" queries.
