The encouragement and dissemination of family history research by people with ancestry in the British Isles is a key component of BIFHSGO's mission. Our goal is to facilitate, preserve and share British Isles and Canadian family history research.
Our members have devoted thousands of volunteer hours researching and transcribing data to create data sources that provide invaluable help to researchers, specifically with respect to home children. We continue to work in collaboration with Library and Archives Canada on a number of research projects.
When you search our Name Index, you will see a link to every record with that name from any of our data sources. Please read the Information to learn about the data sources; this will help you efficiently focus your search efforts.
We do not provide a family history research service, but if you have a specific question, please send us a Query.
