The Devon Family History Society
The Society’s fundamental purpose is to promote the study of genealogy and history, especially of Devon families and places, to educate the public 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.
The Devon Family History Society, formed in 1976, is one of the largest FHS in the UK. The Society is a member of the Family History Federation, an international body which has over 160 member societies throughout the world. Contact with other societies encourages mutual interests and reciprocal research.
