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.


The Joy of Family Research

"In 1773 David Carter was 'committed to House of Correction (6 Mar) with running away & leaving his wife & three children chargeable to the parish of Bassingbourn was brought into Court. Verdict: On promising in open court that he would return to & remain with his family & endeavour to maintain them Court doth think it & order (with consent of Officers of parish of Bassingbourn) said David Carter be immediately discharged from his said confinement.'"
