Helping People Discover Their Family History

Building Work at the Hub 28 November to 8 December

Urgent roof repairs and work to make the  building more environmentally sustainable will be taking place. There will be some disruption although the Centre itself won’t be directly affected.  We can expect a lot of noise. It could be a bit colder than usual in the Centre so please bring that extra jumper.

Gloucestershire Family History Society

The Gloucestershire Family History Society (GFHS) is a self-help organisation staffed by volunteers helping all to research their ancestors and the background against which they led their lives in Gloucestershire and beyond. It has a worldwide membership and is a member of the Family History Federation.

Visit our Family History Centre

Our Family History Centre at the Heritage Hub offers a library, other resources, access to online resources and knowledgable volunteers to help you with your research. You are welcome to visit and it is very helpful if you book a time to come.

Gloucestershire Births, Marriages and Deaths

Our volunteers have worked tirelessly for many years transcribing this free index to make it available to the public, courtesy of the Gloucestershire Registration Service and Gloucestershire Archives dedicated website. Coverage starts from 1837 up to 2017. And, of course this is an ongoing task.

The Shop

The Society sells local History Books, Maps and CDs. The CDs are published by the Society and contain transcriptions of Gloucestershire Registers, Baptisms, Marriages, Burials and a large amount of monumental inscriptions, plus much more. Many of these CDs are also available as downloads. They can be purchased through the online shop or from the Family History Centre.
