Hints and Tips
Little nuggets of information to help you with your research
Chorley Family History Research Centre has an online function
In association with the LFHHS Chorley Family History Research Centre, we are offering lookups of our Frank Hough Mining Archive, Chorley and Adlington Burial Records, Military articles in the Chorley Guardian
A link to the Chorley Family History Research Centre's Website Hub and a list of websites submitted by members
LFHHS Name search
Over the last forty years, LFHHS members have transcribed millions of records which have then been published on microfiche, in booklets, on websites and on CDs.
This list will become the central index to find where a given name can be found and then to provide details of how the record can be accessed whether on fiche, CD, book or website.
It does not replace the existing record but it will provide a lead to what records we have for a given name and where the information can be found.
As a first step, we are adding our CDs then other sources will follow. We expect it will be a work in progress for several years.
Our Certificate search provides details of certificate donated to the Lancashire Family History & Heraldry Society, which are available to purchase. Once you find a certificate you will have the option to submit a request to purchase the certificate.
Surname Index Search
Our Surname Interest search provides details of surnames being researched by members of the Lancashire Family History & Heraldry Society, usually specifying a particular period and county, and often a locality within the county.
Once you find a surname you will have the option to submit a request to the researching member for collaboration.
Access to Pedigrees
This service is only available to current members of the society.
