Welcome To York Family History Society
The Society was founded in 1975 in order to further the interest in Family History Research and is run entirely by volunteers working in their spare time.
Our aim is to bring together local people who share the same interest and to provide a point of contact for those members who, although not living in the area, have their roots within the modern Archdeaconry.
The Society covers the modern Archdeaconry of York which stretches from Coxwold, Hovingham and Sherburn in Harfordlythe in the North to Ledsham, Birkin, Selby and Drax in the South.As well as from Bramham, Bilton and Sherburn in Elmet in the West to Huggate and Bubwith in the East.
The Society’s area overlaps parishes covered in the West by the Yorkshire Archaeological Society and in the East by The East Yorkshire Family History Society.
