At this week's seniors meeting the group will undertake a preliminary discussion about solid-state drive technology so that members can obtain the maximum benefit from Alex's tutorial.
The usual question and answer session will be available at the meeting to help resolve any difficulties members are experiencing with their computers.

He will conclude the session by looking at newspaper notices and discussing how the problems of establishing dates of death can be solved.
A question and answer session will provide members with an opportunity to discuss any family history issues they have encountered.
