ONLINE MEETINGS (members only)

On the 1st Monday of the month the talk will be with a speaker and the 4th Monday will be a local interest meeting.  The latter will feature various areas of the County, based loosely on the parishes within each Poor Law Union, and will identify useful resources for research in that area such as parish chest records, estate collections, local sources and more!

The programme to the end of 2022 and for the first part of 2023  is shown below.  Members can register for each talk by completing the registration form here.

To become a member of NFHS, you can join here.

Log-in details will be sent to you by email prior to each meeting.  Meetings start at 7.30pm with login open from 7.00pm.
