Kent Family History Society is the oldest and largest family history society in the county. The Society now has six branches holding regular meetings in Kent and branches in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and USA. Our Global branch is where our world wide members members may 'meet' electronically.  As membership is not exclusive to a branch members, home and away, may attend any or all branches.
