Sussex FHG

Sussex Family History Group celebrated its 50th Anniversary last year. We have about 3,500 members in Sussex, the rest of the UK, and around the world. There are four meeting centres in the County at Brighton & Hove, Horsham, Uckfield and Worthing; so if you live in Sussex you are likely to find one fairly near to you. We also provide talks online via Zoom to reach as many members as possible.

Our quarterly journal, Sussex Family Historian, is posted to all members as part of their annual subscription. This journal is typically a sixty page A5 document full of articles and information about Sussex. The Group has its own Library and Family History Centre at The Keep in Falmer, Brighton.

The SFHG has designed and built databases of Sussex Information, Monumental Inscriptions, Marriage Indexes, Census Returns, Parish Records (baptisms, marriages, and burials), strays, members interests, Wills, members own family research and other genealogical information as it becomes available and effort permits. The latest database is the Sussex People Index, being built with contributions from various sources that mention Sussex individuals. Much of this data is gradually being placed online in our Data Archive, with free access to members.
