Felixstowe Family History Society

About Us

Felixstowe FHS was formed in 1986 with the aims of:

  • helping beginners to increase their knowledge of genealogy and to assist them in their own family research
  • assisting in the preservation of local and genealogical records
  • sharing knowledge thereby making all aware of what information is available and where
  • arranging speakers at monthly meetings and arranging twice-yearly coach visits to the Family Records Centre and Public Record Office at Kew.
  • publishing a quarterly journal for distribution to all members.

    The Colneis Peninsula lies between the Rivers Deben and Orwell and is bounded on the west by Ipswich and Woodbridge. It includes the parishes of Felixstowe, Walton, Trimley St. Mary, Trimley St. Martin, Kirton, Falkenham, Levington, Nacton, Brightwell, Martlesham, Bucklesham, Newbourn, Hemley and Waldringfield.

    In our Reading and Research Room at the Orwell High School, Maidstone Road, Felixstowe, we hold copies of many records of the Colneis Peninsula as well as local books, photographs and scrapbooks. Also housed there is the 1988 International Genealogical Index for the whole of the British Isles, microfiche copies of the General Registers of Births, Deaths & Marriages up to 1910, the 1881 Census for the UK on both microfiche and CD ROM as well as other computerised information. Also held there is the Huguenot Society "Quarto Series".

    Publishing local records. Since the Society's Foundation, members have recorded local Monumental Inscriptions and these have been collated and published. Many parochial church councils have kindly allowed us to copy their registers and these, too, have been published.
