The society's online and physical archives, located in Galashiels, can help you to research family roots in and around the Scottish Borders.
The Borders Family History Society helps people to trace their ancestors from the Border counties of Berwick, Peebles, Roxburgh and Selkirk. As well as an extensive online resource, they also have their own archive and research room at 52 Overhaugh Street, in the centre of Galashiels.
Here visitors will find the society collection of Borders family history material and publications, which can be purchased. Staffed by local volunteers with knowledge of the area, the collection includes CD and micro film/fiche records of census returns, births, marriages and deaths.
Opening times vary. Open Monday 6pm - 8pm, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 10am - 4pm. Closed on Fridays during Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb and closed over Christmas and New Year.
Visitors are also welcome to attend the society’s regular talks and events.
