Berkshire Family History Society — for family historians like you. Not everyone has Berkshire ancestors, although some of us do. In contrast, some of us have no Berkshire ancestors. But we all know a good family history society when we find one.

  • It's the society for you if you are one of the many family historians who live in, or close to, the Royal County of Berkshire...

  • It's the society for you if you are researching Berkshire ancestors —  wherever in the world you may live

  • Your membership year runs from 1st July to 30th June Whatever point in the year you join, you will receive all four copies of the society's quarterly magazine, the Berkshire Family Historian, for that year 

  • Around half of the society's members live in the area of the pre-1974 Royal County of Berkshire. Just over four in 10 live elsewhere in the UK, and nearly one in 10 of society members lives overseas, with Australia, the USA, Canada and New Zealand the main locations.
