Find your ancestors in Gloucestershire Family History Society

Gloucestershire Family History Society

If your ancestors came from any part of Gloucestershire in the south west of England, whether the Cotswolds, the Severn Vale or the Forest of Dean, then we are the society for you. If you live in the county, but your ancestors came from elsewhere, the society is also for you.

Our members receive a quarterly journal containing articles on Gloucestershire family history. We hold monthly meetings in Gloucester, Stroud, Cirencester, and the Forest of Dean where you can learn more about methods of tracing your ancestry, and perhaps meet unknown distant cousins.

Knowledgeable staff are available to welcome you and offer help at our family history centre, also in Gloucester. We offer a huge range of research facilities which cover not just this county, but every part of the UK. In addition we have many products for sale, and offer search services in our indexes.
