Fife Family History Society

Keeping Local and Family History Alive

Promoting and Encouraging Family & Local History in Fife

Fife Family History Society, which was formed in 1989, aims to join together people with an interest in the research of their Fife ancestors.

The society produces a journal 3 times a year free to members, and holds a meeting on the second Tuesday of the month from September to April. A trip to a library or some place of interest is arranged for May. The Society has members in the local area, across the rest of the UK and throughout the world.

“Was Your Ancestor A Convict?” The 29th SAFHS Conference & Family History Fair, hosted by the Fife Family History Society, is on Saturday 21 April 2018 at the Rothes Halls, Glenrothes, Fife.  


The main reason for joining Fife Family History Society is to make contact with others with similar interests in Fife who share your enthusiasm and are willing to pass on their help and experience.

We encourage members to take out an e-membership which saves costs.

For any family queries/interests please add a topic to the Members’ Discussion Board.

There is also a Photograph Gallery where you can upload images of interest to family history researchers.

We also have a very active Facebook page where you can also put your queries/interests/photos.
