Fife Family History Society
Keeping Local and Family History Alive
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 both in the local area, the rest of the UK and throughout the world.
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.
Our online shop contains FifeFHS Publications, Books, CDs and Maps.
Fife FHS has produced three new CDs £5 - available through our shop.
"Pittenweem Registers" - covering the East Neuk of Fife from 1844 - 1856
"Journals 2004-2013" - 28 Journals. We now have all our Journals up to 2013 on 2 discs. 2014 onwards are in PDF form in members area.
