Welcome to the Stevenage Family History Society!

Our History

The Stevenage Family History Society was established in the Summer of 2003.

A leaflet outlining the founding members’ ideas was distributed in order to gauge the level of interest which resulted in over 30 responses. A meeting was arranged and the Stevenage Family History Society was born!

Since 2003 the Society has grown steadily and we now have 40 regular members. 

Individual interests are varied, with members researching families from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Others have areas of special interest e.g. military matters, resulting in a wealth of experience that can be called on.
