Welcome to Wiltshire Family History Society

****** Coronavirus - Restrictions ******

We regret that the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic means that we have had to make changes to our activities:

  • Meetings. Branch, committee and other meetings are suspended.  Where possible we will maintain contact electronically. 
  • Contact.  We will not have the use of most of the facilities of our Resource Centre, but feel free to contact us at home using the links on our Contact Us page. This includes Research enquiries, and we will provide what advice we can.


 WFHS is for all those worldwide who are researching Wiltshire roots and for all family historians living in and around Wiltshire
