FACHRS  logo

The Family & Community Historical Research Society (FACHRS) is a UK based society, celebrated our silver anniversary in 2023. FACHRS aims to help those who wish to discover more about the day-to-day lives of their ancestors; to promote research by professional and nonprofessional historians into social, local, and family history; and encourage links between institutionally based and independent researchers.

Members can:

  • take part in annual projects based around occupations (2022 – Milliners) – regular online get togethers are held, members chat about their findings, raise queries, and keep up to date with project news.

  • join in major projects which are more in depth and last for several years, the outcome resulting in a FACHRS book. The present project is based around research into the Patient experience in British Asylums during the second half of the Nineteenth Century.

  • contribute articles to the FACHRS Newsletter on the results of their project research or their own independent research topics and can submit more academic articles to our peer reviewed Journal, Family & Community History.

FACHRS holds an Annual Conference in May (hybrid) and an Annual Project Online Conference in February.
