OFHS members join in

We had an article published in the Oxfordshire Family History Society magazine this month and have had a number of contributors sending their family trees and stories as a result. We’re really grateful. If anyone has any more information on Minster families do tell us. Our village family tree is about 3000 people strong and growing but we don’t have many more weeks left to get as far as we can before we get the display version printed, so all help welcome. Family stories are especially valued.
