Sorry, there are no longer any places available.

Come join us for an extensive free tour of our library.

Founded in 1911 the Society of Genealogists (SoG) is Britain’s premier family history society. The Society 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 The Society has many unique unpublished manuscript notes and printed and unpublished family histories.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 and many nonconformist registers. Along with registers, the library holds 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.

Our experienced staff will show you what is held on each floor of the library, explain sources which you may not have used before and demonstrate how to find material on the catalogue and in the library.

Tours last approximately 1¼ hours. Spaces are limited so please book in advance
