Becoming a member of Shetland Family History Society gives access to lots of support and resources to help you trace your Shetland roots.

The members area gives access to a range of transcriptions from records including censuses, monumental inscriptions, wills and much more. Members also receive a copy of the society’s quarterly journal ‘Coontin Kin’, and you will be able to contact our research secretary and Shetland-based members for help researching your family. If you visit Shetland, a warm welcome awaits at our offices where you can browse our growing collection of records and books.
