Geoff NIcholson

It is with sorrow that the Society heard about the death of Geoff on June 28th 2021. Our thoughts are with Geoff’s family at this time. Geoff was one of the founding members of the Society and his Membership no was: 0004, and also he was a very likable person. He served as the first Editor of our Journal, 1975-1980, Vice Chair 1987 – 1990 and Chairman 1990-1996. There is so much more to say about Geoff, still very interested in how the Society was moving forward, he even attended the meeting for the South Shields Branch a week before he passed away. Family History and the Society have lost someone who was so knowledgeable about all the many aspects concerning family history and research.  Always assisting and advising members and others with their research. He will be remembered by those who knew him, for others through his articles in the Journal or through our website.  R.I.P Geoff, always remembered.
