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 St Andrews Parish Centre, 120 Woodhouse Lane, Wigan. Learn more.
We also meet on the last Tuesday afternoon of each month at the Museum of Wigan Life, Library Street, Wigan. Learn more.
Annual membership costs from £14. Learn more.
