Other Branch Activities
Public benefit is central to the work of all charities. Each branch of Berkshire Family History Society plays its own part in delivering that benefit.
Vale of the White Horse Branch members provide advice occasionally at local events in and around Abingdon and Wantage. You can bring your family history questions to these sessions and get some fresh ideas and answers on how you can move your research forward.
From time to time, similar events are held at other locations in the area.

Projects are a vital part of the work of the society. They are important in helping to preserve historic records and making information from those records accessible to a wider public. Without such project work, there would be few if any accurate indexes or transcripts accessible to for you as a family historian.
Examples of Vale of the White Horse Branch projects include the recording of memorial inscriptions in the churchyard of St Peter's Church, Drayton, near Abingdon. This project has recently been completed, and the transcriptions are published on a CD, available from the society.
