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.

Martin Ensor has resigned  the Chair due to other external commitments. On behalf of Rotherham Family History Society I would like to thank Martin for his time as Chairman and indeed for the other Society responsibilities he has undertaken over his many years as a member of the Society. At the Committee meeting held on 19th February, Joe Leach was elected Chairman.

Saturday 6th June 2015
