and welcome to our website
We are an active and forward-looking Society that brings together genealogists and historians with an interest in the area covered by the old Hundred of West Derby.
We offer a friendly active forum, networking opportunities at our group meetings, and a quarterly journal with news, advice and excellent articles about the people, businesses and events that made Liverpool and South West Lancashire what it is today. We also have a members' only section of the website where you can access our members' interests database, back issues of the journal and some other databases that have been provided for you that you will not find elsewhere. A year's membership to the Society is only £10 for UK residents (£15 overseas).
Don’t let your family’s story disappear into the mists of time, share it with us and send it to our journal editor– we publish interesting articles by members and non-members.
Join us for full benefits and know that ‘You’ll never search alone’ with your Liverpool and South West Lancashire Family History Society.
Due to the current situation with the Covid-19 Pandemic ALL of our groups have suspended monthly meetings and regular help desks until further notice to keep both you and our volunteers safe and well. Please see our individual group pages.
We are now very pleased to announce that our shops (UK and Overseas) are now back to being fully operational, and we look forward to your custom.
You will get updates regularly via our Facebook pages, and of course our Forum is still open and active and you would be very welcome to join us there. We're sorry for any inconvenience caused and hope you understand.
