Malvern Family History Society was founded in 1996. Its members are not only interested in the Malvern area, but also across the county of Worcestershire, the British Isles and beyond.
Most of the members live in Malvern and the surrounding area but some live further afield. Many of the people who live further afield have a family history connection with Malvern. All members are welcome at the monthly meetings.
The Society has transcribed an index of baptisms 1639-1754, and this index is available to view in Worcestershire Record Office. They are currently transcribing marriage and burial records.
A list of local history books, which may help you in your family history research, is accessible on the site. Details of surnames currently being researched by members are also available.
