Founded in 1974 by 12 family history enthusiasts, the society, run by volunteers, has gone from strength to strength and in 2014 celebrated it’s 40th Anniversary. From humble beginnings we have grown to a society with currently over 2,000 members UK and worldwide, and have embraced the latest technology with our online access to Ancestry, Find My Past and other sites and can also now be found on Facebook.
