After the event we met at the Brandon Works on Merry Street for our monthly gathering, with a great attendance of some 15 or 16 hardy souls. The family history fair itself had provided such a buzz, it being one of the best in Scotland in years, that there was a lot to discuss!
A huge thanks to Lanarkshire Family History Society and the team that ran the event, including SGN member Elizabeth Irving - it was a truly inspiring event!
