Research your family history

Family history societies

Joining a family history society can be a good opportunity to access the journal and newsletters of the society in the area(s) you're interested in, as well as a chance to meet others by attending meetings.

Most societies will include a members' interest section in which you can insert the name(s) you're researching, and you may find fellow members with the same interest.

The family history society for the London Borough of Southwark is the East Surrey Family History Society. There may be overlapping interest with neighbouring areas covered by the West Surrey and North-West Kent Family History Societies. Southwark used to have a sizable German community so anyone with German ancestors may find the Anglo-German Family History Society useful.
