Good news! We recently applied for a grant from Selby Town Council to help us continue running our meetings during the pandemic. We were successful and would like to thank the Town council for their generous grant.

 About us

We are a small friendly group with an interest and passion in family history. 

We were formed in May 2001 from a short Workers Education Family History Course.

We have  visiting speakers, workshops and outings to enhance our knowledge.  We enjoy sharing our experiences and our family treasures at regular "members-led" sessions.  

We usually finish our meetings with coffee and conversations.

We welcome new members

You do not need to have a family from the Selby district, just an interest in family history.

If you want to pop along for a "taster", we meet most Tuesday mornings in the rear room at Selby Town Hall at 10.00 am.
