WELCOME to the website of The Cambridgeshire Family History Society (CFHS), a long established (in 1976) charity with the specific aim of supporting the family historian who wishes to research Cambridgeshire family history.
We offer access to databases of millions of names collected from a variety of sources including registration offices, parish records, military lists, non-conformist sources, shipping information and wills. If you are new to family research, we will help you trace your ancestors.
We also have an on-line shop which offers hundreds of CD-ROM, books, pamphlets and fiches. You can receive your copy of parish records etc in the post within days.
Finally, we have a membership of some 1400 members from all over the world who receive a quarterly journal packed with interesting articles as well as the chance to partake in interesting tours and meetings. Click Here to review the Aims of the CFHS.
|"Cambridgeshire Camels: I look upon this as a nickname groundlessly fastened on this countrymen, perhaps because the first three lettes are the same in Cambridge and camel. I doubt whether it had any respect to the fen-men stalking upon their stilts, who then in the apparent length of their legs do something resemble that beast. (A Complete Collection of English Proverbs 1817)"|
