Research Service

It is perhaps little known but the Shetland Family History Society offer a research service from its base at Hillhead, Lerwick.

Because we recognise that those Shetland descendants tracing their roots and living outwith the Isles can’t easily access many local resources, including our own extensive and growing archive, the Society has a small, dedicated group of volunteers who offer to undertake research. This work is done free as part of annual Society membership.

For queries from non-members, depending on the volume of information available, a small fee will be charged to cover research expenses.

Take a look at more tips and hints here.
