Good afternoon,
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.

DATA PRIVACY LAW

A new General Data Protection register law is coming into effect on 25th May 2018, and in readiness for that we will be publishing a new privacy statement to make it easier for you to understand the way we are protecting your information within the Liverpool and South West Lancashire FHS

HELP DESKS

We run help desks to help in breaking down your brick walls, or locate repositories for documents that haven't been transcribed onto an internet site.
