Welcome to the Rotherham Family History Society

The Society was formed in July 1983 to bring together the Family History Community in Rotherham and the surrounding area and now has a membership of over 300 local, national and International members. It offers a forum and marketplace, which gives its members the opportunity to meet other like minded people in a friendly atmosphere conducive to the furtherment of their Genealogical interests.


Lucie Warrington is seeking information for the book she is writing which is partly set in Rotherham between 1957 and 1964. She writes “I have some questions around a family called LISTER and I wondered if any of you would be able to help out? I think they were fairly prominent in terms of social standing”. The book I am writing is based on a relative’s live, who knew the Listers before she emigrated”.

If you can help Lucie she can be contacted by Email at: lucie@suparla.tv
