Kent Family History Society

A warm welcome to all family historians! Whether you are just starting to climb your family tree, or have been involved in the detective work for some years, our friendly society looks forward to you becoming a member this year. No matter where you may live the society has something for you.

We currently have a world-wide membership exceeding 3,200 - some 18% of our members live as far away as Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA. If you reside in New Zealand, our postal branch offers an extra benefit with their own home Newsletter which is currently published three times a year. Our Australian members also have their own home Newsletter which is also published three times a year.

Our quarterly Journal (free to members), is published every March, June, September and December.

Our Library offers UK members the opportunity to borrow books, leaflets etc., on loan, for just the cost of postage. Or copies of brief information can be made available from the 'Family Files' for just the cost of photocopying and postage.

The Society has published over 2,000 records on microfiche - all contain a wide variety of information. Some information is now also available on CD-ROM, and all future publications will be in both formats.

If you live in Kent, you can be assured of a very warm welcome at our various monthly meetings around the county in either: Ashford, Canterbury, Deal, Maidstone, Medway (Strood) or Thanet (Birchington). [These meetings are free to local members, or to any member visiting the County].

If you want to get actively involved in the KFHS we always have projects which you can participate in - no matter where you live. I am sure that that our society will be of help and encouragement to you - so why not join us today.
