Getting Started

CANTERBURY BRANCH of the KENT FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY (KFHS)
(KFHS was founded in Canterbury on 28th June 1974 - Member of the Kent Group of Family History Societies)

Via this site we hope to give help and encouragement, not only to those with Kentish roots,
but to anyone involved in this wonderful, educational and often downright frustrating activity that is genealogy!
 

We regret to announce the death, on Sunday, 1st June 2014 of,
Joan Drury
For many years Joan was branch treasurer, and a stalwart of the
branch and its activities. Joan's husband, Derek, a previous chairman of the branch, passed away in January and o
ur sincere condolences go to their family at this most difficult time.
Although Joan's funeral has taken place a memorial service is being arranged later in the year.

Canterbury is the nearest KFHS branch for those living in Faversham, Fordwich, Herne Bay, Whitstable, The Blean, the Elham Valley and, of course, the City of Canterbury. Unless stated to the contrary we meet from 7pm in the British Red Cross Centre, Canterbury see Map & Directions. Meetings are held monthly on the 2nd Friday except January. In July the meeting is held outdoors on a guided walk More.  A warm welcome is extended to all and unless otherwise stated non-members may attend for a fee of 1.

Kent Family History Society is the oldest and largest family history society in the county and now has six branches holding regular meetings in Kent. Also branches in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, USA and the Global branch where Members worldwide may 'meet' electronically.  As membership is not exclusive to a branch all members may attend any meeting of KFHS.
