About Us

The Society was founded in 1977, is a member of the Federation of Family History Societies. A registered charity, we aim to educate and inform about family history with a focus on the county of Hertfordshire, U.K. The Society is run by unpaid volunteers who do their own research and want to pass their enthusiasm to others.

Just a word

Whether or not you live in Hertfordshire, it is possible to share in the work and benefits of the Society. It is very much a do-it-yourself activity as we believe that this is the way to gain maximum satisfaction and benefit from an absorbing and rewarding pastime. We are here to help.
