WELCOME TO THE ABERDEEN & NORTH-EAST SCOTLAND FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY


Our new official coat of arms The Aberdeen & North-East Scotland Family History Society exists to assist and promote the study of genealogy and family history based on the North-East corner of Scotland. This area covers the old counties of Aberdeenshire, Banffshire, Kincardineshire and Morayshire.
The Society owns premises in the centre of Aberdeen with a well stocked library and a huge selection of microfilm, microfiche and CD resources.
The Society holds regular meetings throughout the year, covering many topics of interest to family historians. Meetings are held in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Elgin, Glasgow and in the West Midlands of England.

To learn more about the Society, follow the links below or see here for full details.

The Society is a registered charity and was founded in 1978.
