Hi RootsChat,

Noticed in your post above my two local societies aren't mentioned so here are the links.

Barnsley FHS

Sheffield & District FHS

Some people may wonder why there seems to be no FHS for Leeds. This area comes within the scope of  the Yorkshire Archaeological Society (Family History Section), with it's fantastic library at Claremont.

Isn't there an FHS in Leeds?  Most of my husband's family come from that area and I could do with some help!
Thank you

The Historic Hillsborough website is intended to give people anywhere in the world, access to information about the history of the area of Sheffield in the UK known as Hillsborough and Owlerton. In addition other sources of information such as publications and websites are also included.

The Huddersfield Local History Society website is at link updated Oct 2017 thanks kat

Lots of links which will be of interest to anybody with Huddersfield connections.

Also there is an online version of the excellent "Discovering old Huddersfield" series of books by Gordon and Enid Minter, though I see from the note that Gordon is sadly no longer with us.
