Welcome to the Northumberland and Durham Family History Society website.

The Society, founded in 1975, promotes interest in family history amongst its members and the general public. We invite you to consider joining and to visit Percy House, our Research Centre with its library and search room.

We have branches in Alnwick, Belford, Blyth, Belmont (Durham), Gateshead, Hexham, London, Newcastle, Pegswood (Morpeth), and South Shields.

The Society publishes a Journal four times a year.

We have a wide range of publications, parish records in particular, for sale.

Pursue your interest in family history by consulting or purchasing our records, by attending a Branch meeting and by seeking information on the forum.
