| 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.
We provide a commerce service to create and sell a wide variety of reference
products, and offer unique merchandise across virtually every Family History
topic from Census indexes to Monumental Inscriptions. Please use the 'Shop' link on the main Menu to access details of our extensive range of publications and records.
As with our Publications, we have an extensive
collection of photographs of 'Old Rotherham'. Copies of these may be
purchased either from our bookstall at members meetings and fairs, or by
post. Please note that Rotherham Family History Society owns the
copyright on all photographs in its collections.
Members meet at the Eastwood Methodist Mission Church, St. Ann's Road,
Rotherham. Meetings are held from 7pm to 9pm on the first Thursday of every
month. Existing members, prospective members and visitors are welcome at all
meetings. (Please note that there is a £1 admission charge to non-members.)
NEXT MEETING - 6th June - Workshop and software demonstrations by Tony Beardshaw from My-History.
We have compiled a register of
our members' interests which are published on this website. If you think
that you may have the same interests just contact our Members Interests
Co-ordinator and we can put you in touch with each other.JOURNAL
We publish a 40 page members journal each quarter, containing family and local history articles contributed by Society members. In addition there's usually a quiz, announcements, Members Interests, and the odd joke here and there. We are proud to have been Highly Commended by the Federation of Family History Societies for our journal.
