      The next Eng/Welsh SIG meeting is on Saturday, January 17th 2–4 p.m. at the AFHS library.  The topic will be Names & Dates with information on the 1725 date change which made January 1st the beginning of a new year; regnal dating (i.e. interpreting a date written as ‘5 Chas 1/Hil’); the passing down of family names, religious names and what they might mean and a ranking of UK surnames (‘Smith’ still tops the list).  Please bring along anything related to the topic to share with the group plus any ‘roadblocks’ in your research or recent discoveries.  Ann Williams (403-286-4095)
