HGS: Here to help you explore and research your Family History

Welcome to Hampshire Genealogical Society! We are a registered charity and have been promoting and encouraging the study of family history research since our formation in 1974. Our aim is to help you trace your family’s Hampshire roots.

The Society is run entirely by volunteers and is affiliated to the Family History Federation (FHF). This means we exchange information, ideas and best practice with other Societies and their members.
