Many of our group, whether or not
they’ve got Suffolk ancestors, are members of Suffolk
Family History Society and details of how to join can be
found on their website or you can join at any of our meetings. Membership of the Society also includes four
copies of our journal ‘Roots’ and all for a very modest annual subscription.
This website has been a great success
since it was first opened in 2000 and contains:
- Records covering Haverhill and the surrounding
villages. We thank contributors for
these and aim to add further data.
- A useful Message Board. We appreciate the help of others to
follow up people's messages and assist them whenever possible.
If you would like to start or expand
your family history you would be most welcome at any of our events. You will meet friendly members who are only
too willing to help.
