Our concluding winter lecture for this season will take place on Thursday 14th March 2013 at 7.30pm at the Parish Church Room, Tanpit Lane, Easingwold.
This is a very special occasion, for we are welcoming Rosemary Clemo to talk to us about family history, that is, some of the history of her ancestors. It happens that her family has distant connections with Easingwold, and that is what we are certain to find quite fascinating.
Local family history is very popular as a subject for study, but rarely does one find people who have been studying the same family one has been researching oneself! The lecture will focus on descendants of the Lockwood family. Our society’s publication in 1996 of William Lockwood’s Diary dating from 1796 is a constant source of interest, and this lecture will add considerably to that fund of information.
Quite a racy title ‘Sex, Liars and Yorkshire; Family History is Fun ‘ You will have to forgive us for sounding so different, but I can assure you that solid research, careful work and astounding discoveries will all be on the cards. Come and share the story!
