Derbyshire Family History Society

About the Society

Welcome to our Derbyshire Family History Society website. It gives information on services we provide.

You may also purchase publications, take out membership or send a query.

For over 50 years the Society has linked together people researching their family history in Derbyshire.

During that time we have built up an extensive library and assembled a team of expert volunteers.

Our library in Derby is open two days a week. We ask those who visit to make a donation when they use it.
