East Dorset

Our friendly and active East Dorset Group was established early in 1977 with just nine members. Growing over the years, at one point numbering 80, we have now settled back to around 30 members. 

We run a Help Desk using a laptop connected to the internet to answer queries. We always try to add a Christmas party or social element to our December Meeting. In the past year we have run two Computer Help Days on a Saturday to advise members and the public not only on family history orientated computer enquiries, including demonstrations of the programmes available in this field, but also the use of computers generally. These Help Days utilise the extensive IT experience of seven of our Members.

Meetings are at 7.30pm for 8.00pm.
