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.

The Society’s website at has details of forthcoming talks, useful information about local archives and libraries, the Society’s online shop and Members’ Interests. You can also request searches in the Society’s record collection which has been compiled over many years and which includes some unique records.

Regular meetings are held at five locations around Surrey, which are free for members 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 that is particularly relevant when researching East Surrey ancestors.

Also, our Society Facebook page has up to the minute news and comment.

We welcome applications for membership from around the world.
