Congratulations to Maureen Selley
who has been awarded an honour in the latest 2017 Honours List.
Maureen has been awarded a (BEM) British Empire Medal. The award was made for Services to Local History. Maureen is currently secretary of the Devon Family History Society having previously been their chairman for many years and a great supporter of the FFHS. This award is well deserved for all her hard work in Family and Local History.
Read the small print
Family historians are regularly pressurised to purchase DNA tests. Those who do so enter into a contract with the firm providing the service. But how many read its complete terms?
Our volunteers gave a warm welcome to thousands of visitors at the recent "Who Do You Think You Are Live" event. We gave out vast numbers of the Really Useful Leaflet and helped many individuals with research problems, often linking them with a relevant member society.
Children & Young People's Competition
This special competition aims to encourage 5-16 year olds in the UK to start their own research adventure.
Those taking part will use the FFHS "My Family Tree" booklet to help create their own family tree and explain what they have enjoyed most. Prizes include a family day out at Living History Museum.
