Founded in 1982 to further the interest of family history research, the Society now has members in the U.K., Australia, Canada, New Zealand, North America and Europe. Not all have Bradford ancestors but all have an interest in family history. Those able to attend the Society's meetings benefit from talks, visits and the opportunity to discuss their research problems and successes with other members. They can also borrow other Society's magazines from our library.
The Society, which is run by volunteers working in their spare time, has no recognised research facility for non-members. However, an expenses-only limited-research facility (called the Link Scheme) is available for members who are unable to make a personal visit to some local libraries and archives.
The Bradford Family History Society is a member society of the Federation of Family History Societies and of the Yorkshire Group of Family History Societies (formerly the North East Group of Family History Societies), thus participating in furthering interests of family historians.
