CADFHS Meetings & News Updates


We are back live meetings and  a new venue  and back to Tuesdays

St Thomas Church meeting rooms

Tuesday the 5th of July

Speaker Michael Orme: Local military historian and specialist researcher of  ‘The Great War’. 1914 -1919 memorials that are within a ten mile radius of the Crooked Spire.
He defines himself not as  genealogist who can tell you what is meant by a 2nd cousin twice removed, but as one of those annoying people who can spell Passchendaele without looking it up. 🙂
Whilst he will talk about his books that are based on ‘The Great War’  and his latest one that covers ‘Birdholme’, Chesterfield, he is also going to include information re publication, the research process and local memorials of the War in general.

He will also give some insight into the things that a military researcher can bring to the party when it comes to interpreting our local memorials, particularly with regard to filling in the gaps where service records no longer exist.

Guests are welcome so why not bring a friend or two.
