About The Society
The Glasgow & West of Scotland Family History Society was founded
in 1977. We aim to promote the study of family history, particularly in Glasgow
and the west of Scotland, covering Argyll & Bute, Ayrshire, Dunbartonshire,
Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, and Stirlingshire (part). A close relationship is enjoyed with the Mitchell Library and Glasgow City Archives, and we are indebted to the staff for their interest and support.
The society is not a business and is run entirely by volunteers,
who give freely of their time & goodwill to provide our services and to help
others interested in researching their family history. With 1905
many enquiries from non-members, we have to work very hard to keep pace with correspondence.
For new members, please allow 21 days (UK & EUR) or 28 days (overseas) from
dispatch of application to receipt of new member's pack, the latter serving as acknowledgement
Queries requiring research cannot be answered electronically, our website
being for general information about the society and quick access to the application
Most of our services and facilities are available to members only. We have a Members' only area on the website where information and some indexed databases are being added.
We do not do research for non-members, and even research for members
is not our primary aim, but if you wish help or guidance with research, first
complete the application form and send it with payment to the Society's address.
Please note that research assistance is strictly limited and that only one
query per member can be accepted at a time.
New members are always welcome and we do our best to provide a good service
within our limitations.
