We are a small, friendly Society, formed in November 1990. The group meet locally and provides support and encouragement to those people with an interest in family and local history in the area of North Meols, as well as trying to help with genealogical research.
North Meols was an ancient parish comprising the two townships of Birkdale and North Meols (which included Churchtown, Crossens, Marshside and Banks). The parish comprised much of what is now Southport. As was common at the time, the name of the parish as a whole was also the name of the township containing the parish church. In this case the parish church of St Cuthbert is situated in Churchtown, a central position within the North Meols township.
The Society normally meets monthly at the Cornerstone Methodist Church, Marshside Rd, Southport, PR9 9TL Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month, and start at 7.30pm. Some meetings include talks on specific subjects, while others give members the opportunity to discuss topics of interest, and to seek help or advice when they are stuck with their own research.
