Lincolnshire Family History Society

Lincolnshire Family History Society was formed in 1990 to cover family history interests in the ancient county of Lincolnshire on the east coast of England, and has grown to a membership of approximately 3,000.

The society holds regular meetings at Lincoln, Boston, Bourne, Grantham, Grimsby, Horncastle, London and Louth, where members can hear a variety of speakers, seek advice, and meet like-minded people. The Society runs introductory workshops plus other topics relevant to family history. The Research Centre in Lincoln has many books, mainly relevant to Lincolnshire, microfiche and readers, computer CDs and broadband internet to help researchers wherever their ancestors lived.

The quarterly journal “Journal of the Lincolnshire Family History Society”, enables members at home and further afield to enjoy general articles on family and local history, general genealogical information, events and activities of the Society, and an opportunity to publish personal family history interests. Similar information is also found on the website including details of its own publications of local records, which can be bought online, projects, and how to join the society.

Lincolnshire FHS is a registered charity (no 1000724) and is a member of the Federation of Family History Societies.
