Warwickshire Family History

Welcome to the Warwickshire Family History section of our website. This has been created to help Genealogists and Family History researchers searching for lost ancestors and relatives that were living in Warwickshire – including the town in the north of the county- Nuneaton. There are many resources for Family History research in Warwickshire:

Warwickshire Family History Society

Nuneaton and North Warwickshire Family History Society

– This is a growing society which in 1998 changed its name from Nuneaton Family History Society to encompass the whole of North Warwickshire. This society offers Quarterly Family History Journals free with membership, which itself is a very modest annual fee.

Warwickshire County Record Office

– This is a record office which offers historical records of the county of Warwickshire and the people within, from the 12th Century onwards. You’ll find parish records, school records, hospital records, maps, photographs and much more.
