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.
