Selby & District Family History Group is supported by


22nd October - Research and Training morning. Come along!



We are a small  friendly  group with an interest and passion in family history.

We were formed in May 2001 from a short Workers Education Association Family History  Course.

We have  visiting speakers, workshops and outings to enhance our knowledge.  We enjoy sharing our experiences and our family treasures at regular "members-led" sessions.  

We finish our meetings with coffee and conversations.

We welcome new members

You do not need to have a family from Selby district, just an interest in family history.

If you want to pop along for a "taster",  we meet most Tuesday mornings in the rear room at Selby Town Hall at 10.00 am.
