South East Network Group June meeting

AGRA researchers discover how to apply genealogy techniques to antique artefacts

A meeting of the South East Network Group was held at Paul Blake’s house in West Wimbledon on 15 June 2018.

We enjoyed a joint presentation by Paul and Geoff Swinfield entitled ‘Peggy and Freda’. Paul had acquired a box of photographs at a boot sale and Geoff had bought a painting of a young girl. With minimal details, they were both able to identify the subjects and research their families. We heard how such techniques could be useful for members who might extend their client base to include antique, art or medal dealers who are seeking provenance for their wares.

The next two meetings will be on:

  • Friday 14 September 2018, 10.45am to be hosted by Julia Henderson
  • Friday 7 December 2018, 10.45am to be hosted by Di and Geoff Swinfield
