Welcome to the Shetland Family History Society

Shetland Family History Society promotes the study of genealogy for Shetland families and the descendants of Shetland families. We have collated a wealth of knowledge to assist this research, and members can dip into our extensive archive in the secure area. Members can also get help and advice from our knowledgeable researchers.
