HGS Helping You Explore and Research Your Family History

The Hampshire Genealogical Society, a registered charity run entirely by volunteers, has been promoting and encouraging the study of family history research since its formation in 1974.

 

In pursuit of these objectives the Society has collected, transcribed, published and made accessible in various formats, a large catalogue of Family History Records, data and historical documents relating to the County of Hampshire.

The Society provides research facilities at its Centre in Cosham and is able to advise, guide and assist those wishing to further their research. The range of Society publications and data CDs is available from the Research Centre, through our website, and attendance at a number of Family History events throughout the year.

With a worldwide membership the Society holds lectures, visits, meetings and discussions at  monthly group meetings across the county.

Whether your family connections are within Hampshire or outside its borders, as a beginner or an expert, you will receive a warm welcome. Join HGS and you will gain access to an informed and friendly network of fellow family historians.
