for the exchange of information among members. Click here to get our latest Members' Handbook.
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. For full list of members with
