Welcome

The North West Kent Family History Society was formed in 1978 with the object of aiding and encouraging the study of family history and genealogy in South East London and North West Kent.

We currently have around 1,200 members, whose interests cover the whole of Great Britain and beyond.

Amongst its many advantages membership offers a quarterly Journal, Meetings with talks at each of our three venues and a Library open to members every Wednesday. The Society's Research Service operates from the library, and Workshops are held there on a regular basis, covering various computing and family history topics.

The Society publishes a range of CDs and booklets derived from our project work. These include transcripts & images of parish & cemetery registers, census returns and monumental inscriptions. We also make donations to record offices to help with the preservation and publication of their records.
