The Isle of Wight Family History Society is for all those who want to research their ancestors.
Members include people with island ancestry who live on the UK mainland or elsewhere in the world as well as those who live on the Isle of Wight but whose families came from elsewhere.
The experience and knowledge of our members range from those just starting their researches to those who have over 30 or 40 years experience - one of the aims of the Society is to share the experience to help those just starting.
If you are just starting your researches - see this Message from Jon Matthews on how to get going.
Whether you are an experienced researcher or just browsing this site, we hope that you will find something to interest you - the 'Family Name' search below will show those records we hold on this site, some accessible without membership.
