Searching through the various records that are available in your
local archives can be a daunting prospect. Maureen Hunt is a
genealogist, who has spent many years researching family histories.
She has a lot of experience in this field, and has written a series
of guides to help the newcomer. Some of them are available here for
you to read:
If you are trying to make contact with relatives
or old friends, your best bet is to write to: Express &
Star, 51-53 Queen Street, Wolverhampton, WV1 1ES. Send them as
much information as you can (and even a copy of old photo, if
you have one), together with your name and address and a contact
phone number and/or email address which they can use in the paper.
Mark the letter: "We'll Meet Again". They may be able to
include your details in their "We'll Meet Again" column, which is
published regularly, in editions of the newspaper which covers all
of Wolverhampton, the Black Country and surrounding areas.
