HGS Family History Groups

*** With the unpredictable situation surrounding Covid-19, HGS has taken the decision to cancel all in-person group meetings until at least the end of this year.

Many of our groups will run virtual meetings, using Zoom, so please check the individual group pages for details.

If you see a talk offered by ?any? of the groups, please feel free to contact the appropriate group organiser to be added to the invitation list.

Please check back regularly for updates.***?

We meet monthly to discuss the opportunity to share, learn, exchange ideas and information, as well as to help us each further explore our family history projects. Why not come along and see for yourself? 

  • You can attend meetings of any of our 13 active groups – our newest being Winchester! All groups meet in the evening with the exception of the Fareham Afternoon Group – see page via Groups Menu for details.
  • Visit their pages via the Groups Menu to see their monthly programme of talks, news and articles.  Contact a Group Organiser using the form at the bottom of each Group’s page.
  • Come and meet like-minded people. HGS Group Meetings are free to members and prospective members.
  • They are a good way to gain some new insights on how to further explore your family history.
  • Whether you are a beginner or an expert, with a family from within or outside of Hampshire, you will always be welcome and find someone who has something new and interesting to share.
