New website

Welcome to our new website. We've listened to our BAFHS members and we've tried to make it clean, functional, not too fussy and easy to navigate.
 

Build your bridge
to the past with BAFHS

Formed in 1975, the Bristol & Avon Family History Society supports contact between members with regular meetings and a quarterly Journal. We assist members with problems encountered during research work.  The society promotes and encourages the public study of family history, genealogy and associated interests. Like most other family history societies, BAFHS is run by enthusiastic volunteers.
