Peterborough & District Family History Society

The Peterborough & District Family History Society was formed in 1980 to maintain an association of those interested in the study of Family History, Genealogical Studies, Local History and Heraldry. It promotes the preservation of documents, monuments and other material of special interest to Family Historians. It aims to transcribe and index relevant documents and monumental inscriptions. The original geographical area of interest was centered on the old Soke of Peterborough (originally in north-east Northamptonshire but now in north-west Cambridgeshire) but with the creation of the unitary authority "Greater Peterborough" information on the expanded area - Thorney to the east and the new Hampton/Orton developments to the south is now included.
