The Cumbria Family History Society was founded to help members carry out their genealogy researches and our area of interest is the modern county of Cumbria, which is the old counties of Cumberland and Westmorland and a part of Northern Lancashire and North Yorkshire.
The society produces a quarterly Newsletter, which is sent by post to all members in March, June, September and December. Contributions to the Newsletter are always welcome.
The Publishing programme covers a range of Cumbrian Genealogy topics including the 1851 census for the whole county, Memorial Inscriptions, Carlisle Marriage Bonds, Probate and Burial Indexes, Place names, Strays, and a few Parish Registers transcripts.
Quarterly meetings are held in London for members in the South East. Regular weekend and one day conferences are held in Cumbria. See the activities page or the Forum for current details.
The Society is a member of the Federation of Family History Societies, the North West Group of Family History Societies, the Association of Scottish Family History Societies, the Lancashire Parish Register Society, and a founder member of the Friends of Cumbria Archives.
The Society is also a Registered Charity in the United Kingdom, No 518393. You can join the Society on line at Membership, annual subscriptions run from January to December each year.
