Great Opportunity for all U3As with a Family History Study Group

We are taking a stand at ‘Who Do You Think You Are? LIVE 2010’ event which is taking place at Olympia between 26-28th February. It is the country’s biggest and most comprehensive family history event and it would be great to have input from U3A family history groups. So, if there have been interesting discoveries made in your family history groups it would be marvellous to receive a short report from you, ideally as an email attachment and if there happens to be a relevant photograph, that would be great. We will then try to incorporate as many of these as possible into our exhibition.
We also need volunteers for the stand and would appreciate hearing from anybody who could offer some time.

U3A Survey

A survey of U3A Members was carried out in 2009. There is a great deal of fascinating information that was gathered. These include the distribution of gender viz. 74% female to 26% male - much as one would expect until you see the number who live alone i.e 40%.
The amount of members who now access the internet is surprisingly high at 73% and 47% access the web most days. Contact by email is also high with only 23% never accessible.
Also in the report are results of the length of time members have belonged. So 50% belonged for 1 to 5 years and 25% for 6 to 10 years. 12% belong to more than one U3A.  30% go to 1 or 2 events per month, 28% go to 3 or 4 per month, 23% go to 5 to 9 events per month.  16% attend 10 or more events per month!  What about you?

News Section

This a new idea to give you easy access to U3A News as we receive it.
This section can also be used by you.
This means that any Group Leader can upload changes to their classes or the Secretary can post information about their U3A.
If you want to sell or give away any item this can be posted as well.

All you have to do is let the Webmaster/ Guru know your email address.  He can then invite you to register. After this you log on and add in a new item. New items can also be posted directly by email.
Just let me know what you want please.
