This is the online home of the Federation of Family History Societies, where you can explore a list of British and overseas societies of researchers who share your interests. Many societies have specialist expertise and knowledge available nowhere else; as well as societies based in different locations, there is also the Families in British India Society, for example, along with those focusing on Jewish, Catholic, Quaker, traveller and Romany family history, and more. It’s worth joining a society in your local community as well as a specialist group or one in the area where your ancestors lived, and the annual fees are often low. Find links to organisations in Scotland, Ireland and Wales on the FFHS site too.

Family historians use birth, marriage and death (BMD) records to trace the major events in their ancestors’ lives, helping to identify new names and family connections along the way. You can use the FreeBMD website to find the General Register Office (GRO) reference number you need to order English and Welsh BMD certificates, which date back to the start of civil registration in 1837. Once you have the number, visit the GRO website (http://www.gro.gov.uk/) to order your certificates and take the next step in your research. FreeBMD is part of the Free UK Genealogy family of websites, run by volunteers – also try FreeCEN (http://www.freecen.org.uk/) for free UK Census records online and FreeREG (http://www.freereg.org.uk/) for parish registers, local baptism, marriage and burial records that pre-date BMD certificates.

From FAQ: "Is the Bookkeeper Deacidification Process effective? Treated materials have been tested and compared with untreated control samples in independent tests conducted by the Library of Congress, the Institute of Paper Science and Technology (Atlanta), the Image Permanence Institute (Rochester), the Institut Royal du Patrimoine Artistique (Belgium), TNO Centre for Paper and Board Research (The Netherlands), Berner Fachhochschule (Switzerland), and the American Philatelic Society (State College). By using accelerated aging, these tests have shown that treatment by the Bookkeeper process should extend the usable life of paper based materials by a factor of at least 3-5 times. Although artificial aging does not exactly reproduce natural aging effects, the nature of the test is to err on the low side, and we expect the resultant life extension of treatment will exceed the predictions of accelerated aging."
