A warm welcome to you from Buckinghamshire Family History Society. Founded in 1976, we are a group of over 1,500 family historians who have been helping each other with their research. Have a look around and see if we can help with your genealogy. Visitors are welcome to browse, registration is restricted to Society members.
We look forward to welcoming you to our annual Open Day, which will take place on Saturday 26th July 2014, from 10am to 4pm at The Grange School, Wendover Way, Aylesbury HP21 7NH.
As always, this free event will have something for everyone - whether beginner or experienced researcher - and wherever your ancestors came from.
Entry is free, and there will be free parking available at the venue. By bus from Aylesbury bus station take Arriva service 50 towards Wendover, alighting on Wendover Road opposite Chaucer Drive, about eight minutes walk.
If you are starting out with family history, our Bucks FHS Open Day 2014 will give you with a fantastic introduction. There are talks to help you get started and many family history societies from around the country. Many companies and specialist groups will be most happy to answer your questions. There will be a follow-up talk about computer software for family history in Aylesbury on 16th August 2014.
We are very pleased to have publications from the John Hampden Society in our on-line shop. This is part of a service that we offer to local history societies to promote and sell their publications. The John Hampden Society is unusual in that it's interest is in a person rather than a local town or village.
Ashley Green during the second world war
The Ministry of Information filmed life in rural England to ally the fears of parents who have sent their children away due to the bombing. Fortunately for us Ashley Green was chosen which gives an insight to village life.
