Welcome to Fife Family History Society

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 three times a year free to members (available to members online and with the option to receive this by email). The Society hosts a Talk 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.
