About Us

Barnsley Family History Society was formed in 1986 by a group of family historians in the Cudworth area of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, UK. In 1993 the Society became affiliated to the Federation of Family History Societies. Membership now exceeds 450, and includes many overseas members.

The Society takes a special interest in the region centred on Barnsley, extending from Thurnscoe and Goldthorpe in the East, to Dunford Bridge and Penistone in the West, and from Darton in the North, to Wortley in the South. This area includes the ancient parishes of Cawthorne, Darfield, Darton, Felkirk, High Hoyland, Hoyland Nether, Monk Bretton, Penistone, Royston, Silkstone (formerly included Barnsley), Tankersley, Worsbrough, and Wortley, these forming a part of the Archdeaconry of Doncaster.

Members' meetings, unless otherwise announced, are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7.30 - 9.30pm, at Buckley Methodist Church Hall, Union Court,off Union Street, Barnsley. The venue is within easy reach of Barnsley town centre. Free parking is available and there is full access for wheelchair users. It is well served by public transport.

The Society produces its own Journal, free to members, which is issued four times a year. A collection of back issues of the Journal is now available online at our website.
