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.
A gentle reminder to all our members, Your subs are due for renewal on January 1st. There is no need to wait for that date as any subs paid now will automatically last for the whole of 2020, and that also applies to people who joined for the first time since October 2019.
