Upcoming Events

FamilySearch Workshop:  On Thursday 23 July 2015, for the University of the 3rd Age only, there is being held a workshop on how to use the "Search" function of the FamilySearch program.  This will include instructions on the FamilySearch Catalogue and how to order fillms.  It will commence at 7pm until 9pm.

Indexing: From 1st July until 31st December 2015, the youth in the Newcastle-under-Lyme Stake are being challenged to Index records with the top three youth indexers each month being recognised on their own Facebook page. I had heard a rumour that maybe some kind of chocolatey prize may be extended to the top three!!   Encourage the Youth in your home and Ward to take part in this exciting challenge.  

A Change is Afoot!  Indexing is on the threshhold of new things.
