Manchester & Lancashire Family History Society was established in 1964. The Society encourages and supports research into family history and works for the preservation of, and improved access to, relevant archival material. An important part of the Society's work is to inform and help researchers, in order that they may get the best out of their research, through a regular programme of talks for beginners, and quarterly meetings in Manchester and the Branches, with speakers on topics relating to family and local history within Greater Manchester and the wider area.
M&LFHS members benefit from free and/or priority access to these events, for which there is a nominal entrance charge for non-members.
For information on current events happening in Manchester, please visit the main Manchester pages on the website.

Hopefully, we are now looking forward to a time when we will be able to resume our own Branch monthly meetings, in Oldham Library, and take part in the many projects, commemorations and other activities that will take place in our locality. News of these can be found on the 'What's New' page.
In the meantime, we will continue holding our monthly meetings online, on zoom.
For the 2022 programme and details of registering for the talks, visit our Branch 'Meetings Page'
Our monthly Branch newsletter (no need to be a member) also keeps us up to date with articles, an e-postbag, news of 'what's on', and much more. You can sign up to receive a monthly digital copy (to read on-line or download) or you can visit the Newsletter Archives to 'pick and mix'! Newsletter
