East of London Family History Society
« on: 18 January, 2009, 04:01:35 PM »

Our Society, formed in 1978, is associated with the Federation of Family History Societies, and is commonly referred to as EoLFHS.
Our aim is to promote and encourage the study of family history amongst those living in or having ancestral links with, that area of Greater London north of the Thames extending from the edge of the City of London at Bishopsgate and Aldgate, eastwards through the London Boroughs of Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Newham, Redbridge, Barking and Dagenham, to the edge of Metropolitan Essex at Havering. We generally focus on a variety of aspects of life in this area during the 17th, 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries.
We are currently more than 3500 people from all over the world, but mostly from the UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA who share a common interest in furthering family history and/or genealogical research in the suburban area located just to the east of the City of London
