You can also find the NWKFHS on facebook where you can find out what is happening in the Society and in the Family History world in general.
The Society was represented at the Imperial War Museum preview day of the reopening of the Imperial War Museum and the new First World War galleries which officially opens to the public on the 19th July 2014.
Our representatives was impressed with the Exhibition:
" It is a very impressive exhibition and apart from the WW1 exhibition on the ground floor it also contains on the:
First floor WW2 theme of "Family in Wartime" plus war story of "Supplying front line troops in Afghanistan."
Second floor "Secret War, Peace and Security 1945 -2014"
Third Floor "Horrible Histories Spies" and whilst meant for children I found fascinating (not sure what that says about me!) plus art galleries depicting British art of WW1
Forth floor "The Holocaust"
Fifth floor Lord Ashcroft gallery "Extraordinary Heroes" the largest collection of Victoria and George Cross decorations and tells the stories of 250 people.
A very worthwhile and enjoyable visit which I would recommend".
