The Society was formed in 1963 to help people researching within our three old counties.  The Society has its own Reference Library in Birmingham, open daily, to members only.  Each branch usually holds monthly meetings, with speakers, research and help evenings.  We offer various search services, details of which can be found on our website.  We also run trips to National Archives and Metropolitan Archives in London and have two special teaching days per year.

Interests
