Group talks and visits

We offer an annual programme of talks, visits and film presentations for local groups in Hampshire


Our talks include:

  • work of Hampshire Record Office and sources for local history
  • sources for family history at Hampshire Record Office
  • how to trace the history of your house at Hampshire Record Office
  • maps as sources for local history
  • school records at Hampshire Record Office
  • sources for army ancestry and war memorials

Most talks are PowerPoint presentations. These usually last between 45 minutes and an hour and delivered by one of our volunteers. We cannot provide talks on the local history of a particular locality.

For talks we ask for audiences of at least 30 people. If your group consists of fewer than 20 people you can book a visit on a weekday evening.
