OPEN DAY Gwent Family History Society

Gwent FHS - Open Day at Cwmbran 2006: 10th June: " Gwent (used to be Monmouthshire) Wales

Our Open Day is always the highlight of the Society's year.
It gives us the chance to meet members from all over the country, who come to visit and view the many stalls. And it gives you, the researchers, the chance to view the stalls not just of each of our branches but also those of other Family History Societies and organisations from as far afield as Cornwall, and the stands of booksellers, microfiche producers, specialist computer software retailers and many others.

We hold our Open Day in the ever popular venue of County Hall in Croesyceiliog, Cwmbran, and the previous Open Days held there were voted a resounding success by all who attended: this was thanks to the enthusiasm and hard work of Malcolm Otton, its Organiser, and all our other volunteers.

This year, our 25th year since the Society was founded, we will be breaking all records with OVER 50 STALLS, and over 100 volunteers manning them! So it's just as well we are able to use the balcony area as well as the main hall, to allow you to walk around and visit the stalls in more comfort."
