Genealogy/Family History Society


The Anglo-German Family History Society is a self-help group for anyone interested in researching the family history of people from the German speaking parts of Europe who have emigrated and settled in the UK.

If you are new to German research or a seasoned expert, we encourage you to join.

While the bulk of our members live in England, we have many members in Australia, New Zealand, USA and Canada.

We have built up considerable expertise over the years and everyone who has an interest in tracing their family are welcome. The more people that join, the more likely we are to be able to help each other.
