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.

Donations to the Society are much appreciated and will aid our mission to help Family Historians the world over. Donate now.

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.
