The Buckinghamshire Family History Society was formed in 1976 to encourage and promote the study of family history in Buckinghamshire including the historic county. With over 1000 members the Society caters for those with Bucks ancestry and members researching ancestry elsewhere.

There are regular meetings held in Aylesbury, Bourne End and Bletchley. Most meetings have a speaker talking about an aspect of family history although we do have occasional themed meetings where members are invited to talk on a subject from their own family history research.

The Society is a registered Charity (charity number 290335) and a member of the Federation of Family History Societies and is affiliated to the Buckinghamshire Archaeological Society, the Buckinghamshire Record Society and Bourne End Community Association.
