Waltham Forest Family History Society was founded in 1978 to bring together and to encourage people with an interest in family history and genealogy. We are a small but friendly society that caters for all those with South West Essex ancestry who might live at a distance, and for those who live locally but whose ancestors came from elsewhere.

The Society has

  • regular talks on family and local history
  • workshops to discuss particular topics
  • visits to archives and museums
  • twice-yearly journal Roots in the Forest
  • collection of magazines and local records
  • ongoing projects to transcribe MIs and local records

The July meeting will be a workshop on education. Which kind of educational establishments did your ancestors attend? How did you go about researching their time in education?
