For family historians, discovering a link to an ancestor is brilliant. At our Library and Archives, many more people are making these discoveries. The Society of Genealogists was founded in 1911. Ever since then we've been collecting family history documents, long before the arrival of local record offices - even typewriters were new. We are the National Family History Centre, with a huge library and archive, including Britain’s largest collection of parish and nonconformist registers.
