The MLFHS was formed in 1964 to promote and encourage family history research and this is achieved in several ways. To facilitate and enhance research, the Society offers support and advice particularly through the medium of a help desk based at Manchester Central Library daily, Monday to Friday. Every year our volunteers complete a full programme of projects and are continuously involved in the transcribing and indexing of documents of local interest such as Parish Registers as well as the creation of many databases such as monumental inscriptions. We contribute massively to the Lancashire BMD project and the transcribing of civil registers of births, marriages, and deaths. The Society incorporates three Branches; Anglo-Scottish, Bolton, and Oldham. Each Branch has its own web site, produces its own newsletters, and organises its own programme of monthly meetings with help desks over and above those of the parent Society and undertakes locally based or topic-based projects. The Society and its Branches between them offer around 50 meetings a year at which an invited speaker or Society member will speak on a topic of genealogical interest. Membership of the MLFHS includes membership of any or all of the Branches free of charge. Our online forum allows members to share information and/or seek advice from other members.
