Welcome to the Anglo-Italian Family History Society

If you are interested in Italian genealogy and your ancestors lived in or passed through the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, N. Ireland) after moving from Italy, this site can help you research your family history, as well as learn about the bigger picture of Italian migration to this country.

Annual General Meeting 2020

The Society held its AGM on 11th July using Zoom online conferencing which worked well. The committee was joined by 7 members from several counties in England and also N. Ireland and Australia. As well as the formal reports we had interesting discussions on various topics raised by the members. We hope to use Zoom to have more member meetings in future.



All editions of our award winning journal, Italian Roots are archived on our website. A new issue, March 2019, has been added to the collection. All are available for members to view or download in the Publications section of the Members Area of our website.

Members can also search the 1939 edition of the "Guida Generale degli Italiani in Gran Bretagna" - a directory of Italians compiled under the auspices of the Italian Consular authorities. This has been digitised and added to our database and is a resource not available on any other site. Members can search for a surname and then scroll through the entire book which includes many business adverts, some with photographs.

The list of all sources can be found in our Members Area

Please contact our WebMaster if you would like to share features, photographs or research tips and improve the richness of our website.
