Our history

Founded in 1987, the Anglo-German Family History Society was formed by a small group researching their German ancestry in England who discovered there was virtually no advice on how to trace their roots back to the Continent.

From small beginnings, the society has grown to over 1300 members across the world, with members in Australia, New Zealand and the Americas.

Over the years, society members have built up considerable expertise and produced many research aids and booklets on Germans in the UK which are available through the society.
