The Society of Genealogists Library

We're temporarily closed

The Society of Genealogists is undergoing a transformation. We're setting up a new location in London which means you are temporarily unable to visit us in person. You can still enjoy access to all our online resources and take advantage of our new centre as soon as we have everything in place.

For the latest updates on our transformation and services, please see our news section here.
