We regret that owing to insufficient support the Society has been wound up. Existing memberships expired at the end of 2016. Our last meetings were in November 2016 and the last issue of the North Cheshire Family Historian was published in that month. The Society has been removed from the Register of Charities.

Our assets, including our library, have been passed to the Family History Society of Cheshire.

Our National Burial Index and Monumental Inscription Index data published on the Findmypast website remain available. All the transcriptions of parish registers and monumental inscriptions made over many years by numerous volunteers have been passed to FHSC. The fruits of thousands of hours of labour have not been lost!


Members’ options for the future were described in the August 2016 journal and there was more information in the November journal. Please note that we have not merged with the Family History Society of Cheshire and that former members of NCFHS have not automatically become members of FHSC. As an introduction to FHSC, those members of NCFHS who did not opt out (see November journal) or who were not existing members of FHSC will have been sent the March 2017 issue of Cheshire Ancestor and will receive the June issue. To learn more about FHSC, go to www.fhsc.org.uk

A number of former members of the Sale Branch have formed a new Group within the Family History Society of Cheshire.

The venue is the same: Trinity Methodist Church, Trinity Road, Sale, M33 3ED

Forthcoming meetings are as follows. Admission is £2, which includes refreshments.

Wednesday 10th May 2017, 7.30pm for 8pm
'Wills and Probate', by David Lambert
David has a wealth of practical experience in this subject.

Wednesday 14th June, 7.30pm for 8pm
'The Adsheads of Staybridge - How a One-name Study Really Helped', by Gordon Adshead
Gordon will talk about his Adshead ancestors who were pioneers of five cotton mills, their lives and demise in the cotton famine.

Advance notice: on Wednesday 12th July there will be an afternoon visit to the Manchester Police Museum. For details, pop along to one of the meetings at Sale!
