Welcome to AVSFHG

Our aim is to promote the study of family history in East Suffolk in particular and to provide support and help for those wishing to trace their family history outside the area. We cater not only for those who wish to research their local family history but also for those now living in Suffolk whose ancestors were from out of the county.

Research Open Morning

Saturday 26th November, 10am -12 noon.

Open to members and non-members alike, this is an opportunity to explore what we have in the Group's archives and to meet our committee members. If you require assistance with any research problems or have hit a 'brick wall', experienced researchers will be on hand to offer advice. Free entry. Old Council Chambers, Old Post Office Square, Main Street, Leiston IP16 4ER (opposite the Long Shop Museum).
