About Us

Family Roots was formed in July 1986 with the adoption of our constitution.
Our aim is to promote and encourage the public study of family history and genealogy with particular reference to persons living in or associated with the Eastbourne area and the preservation, security and accessibility of archival material.
The society is very active with membership consistently being in excess of 250.
Our monthly meetings regularly attract over 75 members.
Family Roots is for all those who want to trace their family, whether living locally, in any other part of the UK, or even the wider world.
Our Society is very active and offers a warm and friendly welcome to new members.

Amongst the many activities we offer members, a quarterly magazine, a comprehensive library, a well stocked bookstall, monthly speakers and involvement in current projects.
