Manchester & Lancashire
Family History Society
Email Forum.

This forum and its archive are for society members only

The forum is an e-mail discussion list with several hundred members which enables members to contact each other and exchange information.  Membership of the forum is free, but is only available to members of MLFHS.

Discussions on the forum should be about genealogy and family history in the Greater Manchester area. Topics might include location and interpretation of records, the meaning of old words, pastimes and customs and announcement and discussion of new web sites. Some forum members are prepared to look up information in local archives for members who have difficulty accessing these records. A frequent comment is about how friendly and helpful the members are. Many problems have been solved and connections made as a result of comments made to the list.

To see the collection of prior postings to the forum, visit the MLFHS Archives.
(The current archive is only available to the list members.)
