Milton Abbas Local History Group, Dorset, UK

Exhibition 16 – 17 Sep 2017

Phew! Well we met so many people. Over 100 visitors came along. Thank you to all those who were stewards, those who supplied the cakes, and especially those visitors who came along and shared their family history research with us. People were very generous in sharing their research. Thanks to Ann and Chris Fookes for setting up their display on the Fookes Brewery which was so important to Milton Abbas from 1850 to 1950.

We have so many new leads to add to our knowledge of the people who once lived in Milton Abbas.

We also have lots of documents to catalogue. and more research to do. Some interesting questions arose which require some further investigation.
