If your ancestors lived in the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, N. Ireland) after moving from Italy, this site can help you research your family history.

The Society's website was once again "Highly Commended" by the judging panel of the Geoff Riggs Award. Named in memory of a former Chairman of the Federation of Family History Societies, the award is presented annually to organisations which have improved the overall quality of genealogy and family history websites.
In line with the growth in membership, AIFHS was this year transferred from the "small" to the "medium" category. We would like to thank everyone who has been involved in these achievements.
The Society welcomes articles, photos and links which can improve the content and richness of our website. Please contact our webmaster for more information.
Search our Transcription Database and the online archive of our award winning journal, Italian Roots.
Members can search the records that the Society's volunteers have transcribed. Approximately 600,000 names have been extracted from a miscellany of census, birth, baptism, marriage, and death records together with war, military, directories and occupational records.
Most are not available on commercial genealogy sites and more are due to be added. Not already a Member? Why not join us?
A Keyword search for Italian Roots is also available, making it easier to find articles, names, places etc. within the entire, online collection of journals.
The April 2014 issue is available to view or download from the Member's only area. If you have anything that you would like to contribute to future editions please contact our Editor. The deadline for submissions to the July issue is 20th June 2014.
Find out if your family is already in our family group records collection. Members can send us their family group records for help with the next step and to connect with others researching in the same areas.
Ruth Rowlands, one of our researchers, has a blog at angloitaliangenresearch.blogspot.co.uk, where she updates us on her efforts to find her own ancestors. Ruth also has a blog recommending books about Italian genealogy at italiangenealogybooks.blogspot.co.uk.
Anyone - AIFHS members and non-members - with an interest in all things Italian, may contact each other by signing up to the public Anglo-Italian Rootsweb email list.
