The Bourne Branch is one of 7 branches of the Lincolnshire Family History Society (registered Charity No 1000724). The branch was founded in 1993 and the aim of the branch is to support family history researchers living in the South Kesteven and South Holland areas of Lincolnshire. We have a regular programme of speakers throughout the year and also undertake indexing of records of use to Family Historians researching ancestry in the area. We have members who are researching their family history in all parts of the country and we are happy to offer advice to anyone living in the area who may be researching their Family History. Our talks are free to all to attend and there is no obligation to be a member of the Lincolnshire Family History Society or to researching Lincolnshire Ancestors to attend any of our meetings.

Refreshments are available at the end of the evening which offers the opportunity to talk to other Family History Researchers. We also run a bookstall selling a range of Family History Research guides and also publications of the Lincolnshire Family History Society.
