Welcome to the Kent Family History Society. Established in 1974 as the largest and oldest Family History Society in Kent, with more than 3,200 members worldwide, we are uniquely able to help members to learn how to research their own family tree. If you join the society today your membership will run until June 2016.

The Society is managed by an Executive Committee which meets 4 times a year, these Committee members are all volunteers, as are those who run the Branches.

The Society publishes an informative quarterly journal which is sent free to members. Members are invited to list their research interests on our Members Interests Website.

Branch meetings are held in Ashford, Canterbury, Deal, Maidstone, Medway (Frindsbury), Thanet (Birchington). In addition, there is an on-line "Global Branch".

We have published more than 2,000 records on microfiche; a range of CDs with indexes to Parish Registers and census returns; more than a million C.M.B. records for Kent have been put on Find my Past.

We are always looking for new transcribers, if you are interested contact Karen McLennan:- email

These publications together with books on Kent are available from our online shop. The Society also has an extensive Library open to members to visit (by appointment) or to borrow from.

The current constitution can be viewed from its own page.

The next Society AGM will be on 17th October 2015
