St Albans & District Local History Network have circulated the following message which I am passing on in case you haven't seen it:
The 2016 Autumn Conference will be on Saturday 22nd October at our usual venue, Verulamium Museum. Do please reserve this event in your diaries now, before you forget! If any of your friends are not on our Network email list please pass on our email address – firstname.lastname@example.org – and we will add their address to our growing list.
We would love to hear from anyone who has been undertaking research of any kind from any part of our district; or who has been involved with a project recently. It might be a community project, or research into a building or an event.
Last year we were able to enjoy presentations about smallpox in St Albans, Agincourt, medieval lives, unusual artifacts, school log books, town twinning and a local cinema which never opened.
You may be able to help determine what this year’s programme might look like. Please email if you, or a member of your group, would like to offer a 15 or 20-minute presentation. We will have room for about eight papers during the day and we aim to create a well-balanced programme.
We look forward to hearing from you.
