Members of the East Surrey Family History Society receive a quarterly journal, on paper or by email, which carries interesting family history news reports and articles by fellow members. It’s both the Society’s official publication and a great way to keep in touch with Society events and to learn from other people’s experiences.

There’s also a monthly e-newsletter which is delivered direct to your email address which is packed with news, local events and hints and tips on useful family history sources. You can catch up on previous months’ copies on the Society website at where you will also find the details of upcoming talks, useful information about local archives and libraries, the Society Bookstall and Members’ Interests. You can also request searches in the Society database which has been compiled over many years and which includes some unique records.

Regular meetings are held at five locations around Surrey which both members and non-members are welcome to attend where you can meet like-minded people and hear talks on a variety of related topics. See our website for details of dates, locations, times and topics.

A Members’ Area on our website gives exclusive access to some of our data, and information particularly relevant when researching East Surrey ancestors.

Please see our Society Facebook page for up to the minute news and comment.
