What will be happening?
The Bunting Society’s growing collection of Family Trees, Birth, Marriage and Death Certificates, Wills, Census returns, Newspaper and Photo Archives will be on display. We hope to provide copying facilities and internet access. There will be opportunities throughout the day for research.
We have booked speakers, with a mix of local knowledge and Bunting knowledge. Phil Davis will talk about Long Buckby and Barbara Fuller will tell us about the last Buntings in Long Buckby. There were Buntings in Long Buckby for over 300 years. As an ‘extra’, Phil will lead a visit to the small local Museum and a short walk around the centre of Long Buckby. Bunting Society member Jerry Green will speak to us about Buntings of Long Buckby, their occupations and migrations. Alan Bunting will tell us about his branch of The Bunting Treee.
Bunting Society records and family trees
The growing collection of Bunting Society records, a veritable forest of Bunting family trees, the Society’s photo and newspaper archives and much, much more will be available. We hope that members will bring along their own Bunting photos etc (copies, not originals) for all to see.
