Family History Societies.

There is no doubt that joining a local family history society will be of great advantage in your research. They are like minded people with different levels of experience. It is the place where you will get the most help and also gain valuable experience in researching. They will have access to much material that you would otherwise not see.

The Federation of Family History Societies is an international organisation founded in 1974 to represent family history societies in England and Wales and some overseas countries. They have an excellent website that lists locations in alphabetical order, where they have a member society . You may search for a society in the area of your interest at: FFHS.

The UK family history societies, which have transcribed millions of records between them, sell most of the transcriptions of parish records, monumental inscriptions, etc etc online at Parish Chest. These transcriptions are invaluable to the researcher.
