The Society of Genealogists will be closed from Wednesday 13th Dec & reopens 10am Tuesday 19th Dec

You may have noted it’s been so cold in the Society of Genealogists' Library. I’m afraid our on-going boiler issues aren’t yet resolved and while we now at least know what needs doing, the repairs can’t be attended to until the engineers can come later this week. To add to our woes we’ve discovered that the electrical system isn’t robust enough to allow fan heaters across all the floors and offices. Hence the Management and Trustees have reluctantly concluded that we must close the Society’s Library while repairs are under taken as it really is unpleasantly cold here.  The Society will therefore be closed to visitors and staff from Wednesday 13th December and we hope to to reopen at 10am on Tuesday 19 December (if the boiler repairs have been completed). Further updates will be posted on the website here. The Society will therefore be closed on Saturday 16 December too. 

The Volunteers and Fellows social will go ahead tonight Tuesday 12 December though we are recommending that the dress code is warm winter woollies and hope that the warmth of our welcome will be sufficient!! ​ 

Please pass the message on to all SoG members, friends and volunteers. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and hope to complete the boiler repairs as soon as we can.

Please note that volunteers should not come into the library on Friday or Monday.
