Researching your family history

Berkshire Family History Society has established The Centre for Heritage and Family History on the second floor of Reading Central Library.

The Centre for Heritage and Family History delivers a great new space for society members and the public to use and to enjoy. It offers a lively meeting place and a friendly focal point for everyone with an interest in heritage and history — including family history, local history and social history.

It provides the best family history research facility in the area, and is FREE to visit. In The Centre's Research Zone, you have FREE ACCESS to Findmypast, The Genealogist, British Newspaper Archives and Ancestry Worldwide Edition — the most useful subscription websites — and to much more (online and offline), backed by the informed advice and support of society volunteers.
