The Wharfedale Family History Group met at the Salem Church Hall on Thursday 5th May. President Stanley Merridew opened the meeting which began with the AGM at which all present committee members were re-elected.
The Group is now in its 36th year and continues to be popular for family history enthusiasts whether or not their roots lie in Wharfedale. Chairman Lynda Balmforth welcomed new members and introduced speaker Alan Pugh, Leeds tour guide and Chairman of Friends of Becket Street Cemetery, whose lively, illustrated talk was on the subject of the Titus Salt and Saltaire.
