Was Your Ancestor a Gypsy?

This talk will give a basic history and examples of typical names and occupations, lifestyles and sources.  Our speaker will use photographs and documents, mainly from her own family history, but will mention other families, especially any that would have been travelling in Abingdon and the surrounding area.

Non members are welcome to attend.  We suggest a £3 donation towards costs.

Refreshments available.
