Oxfordshire FHS will have several tables at the Family History Fair this coming Sunday at Bracknell. We will have a good selection of books as well as our parish register and Monumental Inscription CDs and our databases on computer.
Other family history societies will also be there, as well as the Guild of One-Name Studies, Berkshire Record Office and commercial organisations.
We will also be taking a yDNA kit for sale at the very reasonable price of £80 to anyone eligible and willing to participate in the Oxfordshire DNA project.
For this project you need to be male, with ancestry in Oxfordshire (including old Berks, Oxfordshire since 1974) of at least 3 generations that goes back into the 19th century, preferably 1850 and earlier. We are tracing all Oxfordshire surnames and building a great database which helps us track families in Oxfordshire. (Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the project.) We can supply more kits by mail at the same price for those not attending the fair.
