The Society of Genealogists offers a wonderful combination of research material, expert guidance and practical support for anyone interested in family history or social history.

Our Library and Archives is closed and our public events programmes have been suspended. But our family history experts have been working really hard to develop new ways of delivering our talks and workshops. Building your family tree is a perfect activity while you're staying safe at home. Although, maybe not quite so perfect if you hit a brick wall. That's why our online courses started last week.

It's only our building that's closed. So our first online course, delivered twice because it immediately sold out explained how to search the large number of records available on our website. As the National Family History Centre, we store and index family stories and documents from all over the UK, aiming to keep them safe and make them as available as possible to everyone.

You will find links on our home page to take you to all our online records and to our Library. Our News and Courses webpages will show whenever there's a new course available. Plus there's help pages to get you started, if you need them, and Advice Lines if you want one of our experts to help you.

If you are already a Member of the Society, our website also holds a large Members section with lots of tutorials and advice.
