Members are meeting on Zoom and intend doing so until the end of the year – and beyond if necessary.
Shirley Robinson, publicity officer said, “It means that we are able to book eminent genealogical speakers from all over the country, and the first monthly meeting and computer group meeting we held were very successful and attracted people from many parts of the UK and even overseas. Many have been working on their family history during lockdown.
“We are asking anyone interested in participating in the monthly meeting talk, which takes place on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 7.30pm to approximately 9.30pm to check our website www.dorsetfhs.org.uk for details, and then to email firstname.lastname@example.org the week before.”
An invitation will then be sent out with sign in details. On the night participators will be asked to sign into Zoom from 7.15pm. As the group usually charge £3 to attend the meeting, the society would welcome a contribution to cover the cost which can be paid online via the website.
The computer group meetings, which have all the details on the website, are being held in the same way by Zoom, and are also open to everyone.
Shirley added, “It’s certainly been, and continues to be, a challenging time. We are looking into opening Treetops in a limited way as soon as we feel confident and happy with our safety arrangements.”
