Going beyond your family history

"Founded at a meeting of over 100 people at the Open University (OU) in Milton Keynes on 18 April 1998, FACHRS (it rhymes with "thatchers" or "crackers" - your pick!) was first suggested by Shirley Fisher a former student of OU Course DA301 Studying Family and Community History: 19th and 20th Centuries.

The aims of the Society are to promote and communicate research in family and community history, with a particular emphasis on the contribution of locally based micro-studies, especially through collaborative research. Over the years, major projects have resulted in books on the Swing Riots, 19th century Allotments, and Almshouses and a number of mini-projects that have proved immensely popular, with 30-40 per cent of Society members taking part."
