Do you have an ancestor who served in a conflict, then why not come along and listen to Graham Popple, do a talk on how the Commonwealth War Graves Commission started up and what they still do today. He will then talk about how you can research your ancestors "Service Records". This is the latest course that Graham has written and all participants will get a copy of the course notes for them to look back at and help them with their research. Graham has been researching his family history since 1988, starting just before he emigrated to Australia, so he has done most of his English family research from here in Australia showing that you don't have to live in the country where you are researching.
