The North of Ireland Family History Society (NIFHS) is a voluntary non-profit-making organisation encouraging an interest in family history.

The objective of the Society is to foster an interest in family history with special reference to families with roots in the North of Ireland and their descendants, wherever they may be.

The Society is not a Research Agency, although we do like to put people in contact with one another and share information.

The Society has the following Branches:
   Ballymena, Belfast, Coleraine, Fermanagh, Foyle, Killyleagh, Larne,
   Lisburn, Newtownabbey, North Armagh, North Down and Ards, Omagh.

The main area covered by the Society is shown in highlighted green on the map.
For the location of Branches, click on the map (or view the NIFHS map page).

As well as supporting Branch activities, the Society has a Research Centre and has produced a range of Publications to help members and non-members in their family history research.

We have PayPal facilities for services such as membership, publications, and donations.
