Berkshire Family History Society’s objectives are (a) to advance education of the public in research into family history and genealogy, primarily, but not exclusively, within the boundaries of pre-1974 Berkshire; and (b) to work to promote the preservation, transcription, indexing and ready accessibility of related records and information. See our website www.berksfhs.org.uk
The Society’s headquarters and its Research Suite are in the Centre for Heritage and Family History Research located on the 2nd Floor of Reading Central Library in Abbey Square. The Centre houses a library, computer suite and an administration office, and is open to public callers three days a week, one evening a week and one Thursday a month. Researchers and members use the facilities to further their family history research, and help from volunteer assistants is available.
