The English Catholic History Association encourages interest in the Catholic history of England and Wales. They organise visits to places associated with the Catholic faith, and arrange conferences on subjects relating to our Catholic history. They also support research into subjects of Catholic interest and seek to prevent the destruction of Catholic archives.
More details are on their website here. You will also find talks which have been recorded and can be downloaded and listened to.
The Catholic Family History Society exists to encourage research into Catholic ancestry. Although especially interested in English and Welsh Catholicism, we also have special interests in Irish, French, Polish and Italian ancestry etc. Anyone who is interested in Catholic ancestry and family history is welcome to join. Members receive Catholic Ancestor, our journal, three times a year. This contains members’ own researches and a wide range of helpful articles. An Annual Day Conference is held in Central London in October.
Volunteers around the country transcribe early Catholic Registers, and these are offered to members when available, in CD-ROM format and may also be available at your local Record Office. Non-members can also purchase these and all past publications.
