The Isle of Wight Family History Society is for all those who want to research their ancestors.

Members include people with island ancestry who live on the UK mainland or elsewhere in the world as well as those who live on the Isle of Wight but whose families came from elsewhere.

The experience and knowledge of our members range from those just starting their researches to those who have over 30 or 40 years’ experience - one of the aims of the Society is to share the experience to help those just starting.

Details of future events can be found on the IWFHS website at:

The Programme Secretary is always on the lookout for speakers for future meetings and can be contacted via:
