(Registered Charity No 288686)
Welcome to the Cornwall Family History Society website. Since its beginning in 1976, the society has aimed to become a centre of excellence by encouraging Cornish family history research. This is being achieved by publishing a quarterly journal, co-ordinating the transcription and indexing of more than five million original records, maintaining a research library in Truro for members and the general public and offering a means of worldwide contact and exchange of information between members.
Our existing website has served us well over many years but has had its limitations. However –
The society can now announce that the NEW website will go live on Monday 13th March.
It has taken much longer to develop than envisaged, in part due to the development of the much acclaimed War Website, but we thank you for your patience and hope that the wait will have been worth it. Every facet of the website has been changed with the aim of presenting a more modern and user-friendly experience. We trust that feedback will be positive, but gladly accept constructive criticism.
We have a good relationship with our web developer and intend to amend, improve and expand the website as time and finances permit.
On a technical note existing members will need to reset their password on initial entry into the website. The procedure for this can be viewed on the following link :- PROCEDURE FOR NEW WEBSITE LOGIN
