Who We Are
 Burntwood Family History Group was founded in 1986 in the living room of a house in Burntwood by a small group of people with the idea of researching their family history in the towns and villages in our area. We have grown steadily and our membersip is made up of like minded people of all ages and professions and we meet at the Burntwood Old Mining College
We are a member of the Federation of Family History Societies and our website was 'Highly Commended' in the FFHS Best Website Award 2010
Read about our award
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in family history at a very modest subscription rate and we also have postal members throughout the world.
 To join us, please print, complete and post to us the membership application form
If you are researching locally your ancestors in the towns and villages in our area, you are welcome to contact us for help and advice.
We are only too glad to get you started and give the benefit of our local knowledge and even offer a limited amount of voluntary research in some cases
 Members of the Group regularly give talks on Family History to other organisations in the local area.
If you are interested in a member of the Group giving you a talk, contact our Chairperson
