The Society’s objects are to promote the study of genealogy and history, especially of Devon families and places, to educate the public therein through advice and instruction, and, for the public benefit, to encourage the preservation and transcription of relevant documents and records, especially for the county of Devon.


Tree House is the Society’s research centre in Exeter, we can help people to find their ancestors wherever they come from.
