|NNWFHS at Atherstone's WW1 Rememberence Weekend|
The NNWFHS was at the Atherstone WW1 Weekend on of August 16/17 2014 and we used our WW1 display for the first time. Below are photographs taken of the display with our very own Celia Parton (far right) who has been very busy for a few years now leading the transcription of all the War Memorials in the NNWFHS area and more recently leading the research of military records to add background to the names on the memorial.

|July 2014 Journal Issued|
The NNWFHS Quarterly Journal has been released and will be winging its way to members via their chosen method of delivery. As ever our Editor, John Parton, has put together an interesting publication full of facts and information about Family History in Nuneaton and North Warwickshire. This edition features:
Remember the journal is only available to Members (who can click here for a PDF copy) and for as little as £10 per year members receive four journals and exclusive access to copies of all journals issued since 2009 as part of their membership. In addition they have access to other databases and information put together by the Society that is not made generally available. If you are not already a member join now!
