This visit is an opportunity for research and information professionals to view Britain’s premier family history society. The Society of Genealogists (SoG) maintains a splendid genealogical library and education centre in Clerkenwell in London.

The Society’s collections are particularly valuable for research before the start of civil registration of births marriages and deaths in 1837.  The Society has many unique unpublished manuscript notes and printed and unpublished family histories. Its library contains Britain’s largest collection of parish register copies, nonconformist registers, local histories, copies of churchyard gravestone inscriptions, poll books, trade directories, census indexes and a wealth of information about the parishes where our ancestors lived.
