Welcome to Wigan Family & Local History Society

Our main object is the promotion and encouragement of research into family and local history.

Our society is a member of the Federation of Family History Societies (FFHS).

Our Facilities and Publications

We have a library of books (some of which are available to borrow), some fiche (including the 1981 IGI) and a fiche reader available, for loan to members. The library and fiche reader will be available at all members' evenings, but for practical reasons, loans are not available to postal members.


We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at Sunshine House Community Centre, Wellington Street, Scholes, WN1 3SA. Learn more.


Annual membership costs from £14. Learn more.
