London Family History Societies


The map shows the areas covered by the various family history societies which include parts of London in their area. Note that the London, Westminster & Middlesex FHS was formed in 2001 by the merger of the London & North Middlesex FHS with the Westminster & Central Middlesex FHS.

The list below lists the relevant society for each parish/area. Note that the list covers only those parishes which fall within Greater London and does not necessarily list all areas covered by a particular society.
