The primary aim of The Seaham Family History Group is to further the family history interests of its members. 

We extend an invitation to all who are interested in genealogy to join our Group. 

If you are interested in Family History and would like to know more about your ancestors, who they were, where they lived and what they did we can provide guidance, help and the use of research materials. Perhaps you are already trying to discover your roots but are not too sure how to go about it, or maybe you're an old hand, and would like to share your knowledge and experiences with other like minded people. Then why not join the Seaham Family History Group. 

The Group holds a wealth of family and local history data sources for use in members research. Members also have free access to computers and Ancestry Family History databases in the Library each Wednesday morning. 

Come along to the Library on a Wednesday morning and have a cup of coffee and a chat and find out what we do. 

                           You will be very welcome. 


If you wish to apply for membership just join us at one of our meetings or complete the contact box below and we will get back to you.

The present Annual Subscription Fee is £5.00 (Couples £8.00) and is renewable on the 1st January each year.
