Local Research Resources

Family history societies often publish helpful journals, transcripts, compiled genealogies and host helpful websites. They may have ongoing projects to transcribe records and create indexes. Most societies publish queries in their journals and maintain lists of members’ research interests that may be helpful to you. You may want to join one of these societies, reap the benefits of their expertise and resources, or support its efforts.

Addresses of the societies are for the most part where their meetings are held as they are by-and-large not brick-and-mortar institutions.

The Society's area now comprises the City of London, the City of Westminster, and the London Boroughs of Barnet, Brent, Camden, Enfield, Haringey, Harrow, and Islington, together with parts of Ealing and Hillingdon.
