Founded in 1975, Berkshire Family History Society works to meet the needs of those researching their ancestry across the UK and overseas – as well as those looking for former relatives in historic Berkshire

A registered charity, we exist to help you in your research … WHEREVER your ancestors are from. You do not need to be a member to benefit from our public resources although we have many exclusive member benefits

Our programme of talks, walks and courses is the largest of any family history society in the UK and our family tree facility – YourTrees – enables you to display your research online at no extra cost than the society membership fee, which starts from as little as £19/year

Talks - Walks - Workshops - Courses - Meetings

With over twelve events per MONTH, our events programme is probably the largest of any family history society in the UK!

A mix of In-person or Zoom meetings

Many are open to the public but some are members only.  Join now to get access to the full programme and our video catch-up service


Around 1,200 genealogy related products – Books, Maps, Photos, CDs, Data Downloads to help you with your research – we’ve provided a few recommendations for you below
