The issuing of a charter for a market in 1199 gave Chipping Barnet its name. The growth of the coaching industry in the seventeenth century gave Barnet High Street 45 pubs. And the town gave its name to a battle attended by three kings. Through drawings, maps and photographs we examine the rich history of Barnet from medieval times to the present.

We'll be at The Family History Show
Do come over for a chat with us, if you're at the Show. The Society of Genealogists is looking forward to attending The Family History Show at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey on Sunday 24th September 2017.
Bring your questions and give us a challenge. Our experienced genealogists are really good at thinking of new avenues to explore to find that missing ancestor or a piece of information that you know should be available. Our society is the National Family History Centre and we are the UK-wide repository for family history documents and records. So, we have documents and items in our library that you might not expect to find.
The Society of Genealogist's successful family history skills course continues with a second set of evening classes to develop your research and genealogy knowledge. Our team of professional genealogists present a carefully designed curriculum to develop your skills.
