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.

Annual General Meeting April 2016.
It was proposed by the Committee to charge all members £1.00 at meetings at which a speaker has been booked. This was discussed at length by the membership present, who unanimously voted in favour of accepting the proposal. This will be a big saving to our finances over the year and go someway to paying speaker charges and expenses.
The first meeting at which this charge will apply is Thursday 5th May 2016.
Visitors/Non members remain at £2.00 all meetings.
