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.
We meet on the third Monday of each month (no meeting in August) in the United Reformed Church Hall, Chapel Road, Saxmundham, starting at 7:30 pm.
See our Programme Page for details.
Admission is £1.50 for members, £2.50 for visitors. Tea, coffee, and biscuits are included. Visitors are always most welcome.
Experienced family history researchers are at most meetings to offer research advice.
