Chris Churches will talk about the recent work she has been doing in the North Yorkshire Archive, Borthwick and Nottinghamshire Archives on Slingsby wills from the 16th and 17th Centuries onwards. These give interesting insights into life, property ownership, occupations, and old family relationships in the parish in the past.

Meetings are open to all. Please just turn up if you are interested.  For meetings in the Village Hall committee room we charge £1 per person, to cover hire costs.

(Please use the kitchen entrance on the west side of the Village Hall, as the main hall will be in use for another event.)
