Family History

From 1999 to 2009 the Huguenot Society published 20 issues of a journal specifically devoted to Huguenot genealogy and family history, details of which are available here. Download a list of contents of issues 1-20

The Society's indexed publications contain hundreds of names of members of Huguenot congregations and communities. You can search for an ancestor via the microfiche index for the first 59 volumes of the Quarto Series, via individual volume indexes, or via the search function on the CD-ROM digitized versions of the Quarto Series. (See our Publications page for a full list of those Quarto Series volumes which have been digitized and an order form for the CD-ROM). The CD-ROM can be purchased from the Administrative Officer, or online (see Publications page).
