Our membership includes all established family history societies in Scotland, as well as several national and regional bodies throughout the world. The Federation of Family History Societies has over 160 member societies, all helping their own members to research their ancestors in England, Wales and Ireland. The Federation strongly advises you to join the societies covering the areas of your research.
