About Fenland Family History Society

The Fenland Family History Society was founded in 2001 to promote and encourage the study of family, local and social history with particular reference to persons having lived in, or having been associated with, the historical area now known as Fenland.

 

Fenland comprises the former Isle of Ely, parts of South Lincolnshire and West Norfolk.

The Society also aims to promote and encourage the preservation, security and accessibility of archival material. We have a strong working relationship with the Wisbech and Fenland Museum.

We are a young society but already have over 150 members from all parts of the UK as well as Canada, USA and Australia.


Meetings

The Society meets at 19:30 on the fourth Thursday of each month (except August and December) at St Peter's Church Hall in Wisbech unless otherwise stated. There is a map of the centre of Wisbech to show the location of the hall.

 

We have a full programme, including speakers, members' evenings and outings. An archive of reports of previous years meetings is available.

Publications

Fenland Family History Society publishes transcriptions of memorial inscriptions (also known as monumental inscriptions MIs) recorded by the Society at churchyards, parochial (civil) cemeteries and inside churches; transcriptions of parish registers; and images of the pages of parish registers recorded by the Society. These are all published on CD-ROM in the universal PDF format (except as shown) with Adobe Acrobat reader included.
