What we're about

The British Isles Interest Group of the Southern California Genealogical Society (SCGS) promotes and encourages interest in family history, particularly relating to ancestry in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man. We educate and encourage others in British Isles family history through research assistance, a variety of resources, and a community to facilitate the acquisition and exchange of family history research information. At monthly meetings fellow researchers are available to answer questions and provide assistance.

The group meets monthly on the 4th Sunday (except December), 1:00-5:00PM. Our meeting location alternates between the Southern California Genealogical Society Library (SCGS), 417 Irving Dr. in Burbank, and the Los Angeles Family History Library (LAFHL) at 1591 E. Temple Way in Los Angeles (90024). In odd-numbered months we meet at LAFHL; in even-numbered months, at SCGS.

The SCGS British Isles Interest Group was formerly the British Isles Family History Society - U.S.A. (BIFHS-USA).
