The City of York & District Family History Society

The aim of the Society is to bring together local people who share the same interest and to provide a point of contact for those members who, although not living in the area, have their roots within the modern Archdeaconry.

Many of our events take place at our Gild Hall, Bedern Hall(map below), which we share with the Company of Cordwainers and the York Guild of Building.
