Largs and North Ayrshire Family History Society was established in 1988, and is now known as North Ayrshire Family History Society.
Its aim is to encourage and promote the study of family history, especially within the Local Government Authority area of North Ayrshire.
Largs is situated on the River Clyde and has a population of 13,000. Largs is famous because of a major battle that took place in 1263, when the Vikings were driven back by the army of Alexander III.
