The programme for the day was as follows:

|10.00am||Welcome & notices etc.|
|10.15am||Our first speaker of the day was Ian Waller. Ian is professional genealogist and archive researcher he is a member and Vice-chairman of AGRA (The Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives). He is also the Author of "My Ancestor was an Agricultural Labourer" and "My Ancestor was a Mormon" and has written many articles for the popular family history press. Ian has given us several talks over the years so it is very nice to welcome him back with one of his new talks: "All the B’s". We may all discover bastards, bigamists or even baronets in our ancestry. A light-hearted look at the effects the Bs had on society and the many records which can give a vivid insight into life at all levels of society.|
Annual General Meeting
The AGM concluded at 1:25pm.
|c2.45pm||Our second speaker of the day was Tim Cox. Tim is a retired solicitor, who has a wide range of interests, for example social history, military history, travel, and the visual arts. We first met him last July when he gave a talk at Dartford on the history of the seaside holiday where he almost brought the house down and had a job to escape. So it was agreed by the committee to rebook him for the AGM. His talk this time was: "Soldier, Soldier, will you marry me?: Soldiers’ wives 1660-1900"|
