Huntingdonshire Family History Society

Huntingdonshire Family History Society was established in 1985, its aim being to help people learn more about their genealogy. 

They can assist you with your genealogical research so you can discover your ancestors.

Huntingdonshire became part of a larger Cambridgeshire due to the county reorganisation in 1974.  Information about the parishes of Huntingdonshire is available on the site.

Society Books

The Society's large collection of books is available on a reference only basis in Huntingdon Public Library.

Research Service

Whilst the Society cannot undertake extensive research for its members, it may be able to suggest professional genealogists who have knowledge of the local area. 

They can, however, conduct searches of the Huntingdonshire Strays Index, but you must be a member to take advantage of this service.
