Here are some very good reasons why you should join us for a most enjoyable day!

1. Enjoyed the super facilities at this superb new location at The Garden Rooms at Tennants the Auctioneers in Leyburn - worth a visit any day!
2. See the many displays of future sales - you never know what amazing things you will see!  
3. Enjoyed a mini-tour of The Garden Rooms.
4. Have memorabilia or antique valued - even better if it is Metcalfe related.
5. Enjoy not one but two presentations :

  • 'Wensleydale Clockmakers and their Clocks' by Dr David Severs of Northallerton 
  • 'Discovering Manorial Records - working back from 1926 to 1089!' with Jackie Depelle, Chairman of the Yorkshire Group of Family History Societies. .

6. Meet the team from the Upper Dales Family History Group to see how they can help you with your wider family tree in the Yorkshire Dales
7. Receive individual guidance to access and use the society's 'Members Room' and 'Image Library' and so access a treasure trove of data and photographs
8. Meet the ‘relatives’ you never knew you had
... and the added bonus of a most enjoyable weekend in the Yorkshire Dales, homes of the Metcalfes.
