NEXT Thursday (January 23) the Friends of Sandwell Archives will be holding their AGM at 2.30 at the Sandwell Community History and Archives Service at Smethwick Library.
This will be followed by a talk on "Interpreting handwriting from old wills" by Mary Bodfish.
The talk is open to non-members at a cost of £2, including refreshments.
The society welcomes new members who are interested in the history of Sandwell contained in the documents stored in its archives.
The annual membership fee is £6, and this entitles free admission to all its activities, including four talks each year.
