About us

The Society was founded in 1977 and is a member of the Federation of Family History Societies and also a registered charity with a brief to educate and inform the public about genealogy with its focus on the county of Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom.

Those of us on the committee or who do work for the Society are all unpaid volunteers who do family history and research because they 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.

The Society does not act as a genealogical research agent nor does it create family trees for members.
