Welcome to our Website
The society was formed in 1987 and is for all those who are interested in genealogy and family history. Our members include people who live locally, in and around the area of Kirklees
and Huddersfield, but also nationally and around the world.
We have a large and very active team of volunteers who work with the society, helping with a variety of things
such as transcribing parish registers, helping at one or more of our many library sessions, or helping out at the “Root Cellar”,
to name just a few, and the committee would like to thank all our volunteers who, like the committee members, give their time freely.
We are always in need of more volunteers and anyone wishing to offer some of their time, would be most welcome.
The society holds an annual Family & Local History Fair which is usually attended by a variety of stall holders.
The fair is a valuable facility for Family Historians to fnd out what is available not just from this society but also from many neighbouring societies
as well as being able to see what is available from a number of public archives and companies with family history related products.
We hope you find navigating around the site easy, informative, and productive and we hope you are encouraged to come back and perhaps join our society. In either case, thank you for your visit and we hope to see you soon.
The website is constantly being modified and improved,
however, should you experience any problems navigating this site, or need a few pointers, or even have any suggestions about the content of the website, please contact the Webmaster.
