Are you interested in your Shetland Roots?
A very warm welcome to the official website of the Shetland Family History Society.
Shetland Family History Society is one of many similar societies, operating worldwide, through which members share a mutual interest in family history. The Society brings together those studying genealogy and family history in Shetland, which is situated in the north sea between Scotland and Norway.
Genealogy is a rewarding and absorbing subject which requires a good deal of time and patience. Many of our members have been studying their family history for many years while others have just started. All enjoy the detective work, especially when they pull out surprises!Become a member >>
Feedback from our Members has shown us that many of them are working on projects to do with Shetland, which are more general than research into their own family trees.Read more >>
