Welcome

The Causeway Coast and Glens (formerly Coleraine) Family History Society is a  branch of the North of Ireland Family History Society, the NIFHS.

2019-20 is the 40th year of the NIFHS however our programme of  celebration has been severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. All physical meetings have been suspended until further notice. We remain active online.

We are a group of people with a common interest in researching family history. Most of us are researching our own family names in the Causeway area, or in other parts of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

We are interested in exchanging information on these names and hints on researching them with other NIFHS members, but are not professional genealogists, and unfortunately cannot undertake outside research.

Specific requests for help, information or look-ups by MEMBERS ONLY should be sent to the Branch Queries Secretary at the Contact link.  Please quote your membership number. Where appropriate these will be read out at Branch meetings, and will usually find a sympathetic member to follow it up.

In the coming weeks we will be upgrading the look and feel of our web site. There may be short periods when the website is unavailable and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

May we also draw your attention to our website address which is www.causewayfhs.org.uk which you should use from here on as it more correcly reflects our remit.
