Bedfordshire Family History Society

Bedfordshire Family History Society is a well-established organisation, since its beginnings in 1977, with a steady membership of about 1,000. The area covered by the Society is the historic county of Bedford, including Luton.

Much is on offer to researchers with interests in this southerly part of England, such as the Society's extensive library from which attendees at the monthly meetings in Bedford can procure books on loan; and a bookstall, with over 350 publications on family history and Bedfordshire, which are also available at meetings or by post.

Best of all are the Society's own publications making Bedfordshire records more accessible to all, and the "Bedfordshire Family History Society Journal" which is distributed each quarter to members near and far with its listings of their personal family history interests, articles about research and Bedfordshire, and general information on events etc. The website at also lists members' research interests, publications in detail, useful research services and much, much more.
