ANNFIELD PLAIN FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY
North West Durham
We are a group of like minded people with an interest in Family & Local History, based in Annfield Plain but covering the history of the whole of North West Durham.
The Society was formed in 2000 and have a small but thriving group. Over the years we purchased the local church records on microfilm and this year purchased 20 years of the Stanley News. The Society also has two film readers available in the Annfield Plain Library.
There is an ongoing project, being conducted by members of the Society, to record and transcribe the registers and headstones in some of the local churches.
In 2008 as part of the Annfield Plain Library centenary, the Society republished the series of books by the late Frederick J Wade, with the proceeds going to various charities.
The Society meets the first Tuesday of the month at 1.30 - 3.30, in Annfield Plain Library.
Help sessions are also provided in four of the local libraries:
Annfield Plain every Monday 1.30 - 3.30, tea and coffee is available at 30p per cup.
Consett Library the first Friday of the month 9.30-11.30 (except January)
