The Family History Society of Buchan was set up in 2008 to promote the study of genealogy and family history within the historic area of Buchan.  We have a growing membership from all over the world, who have free use of the Centre which is staffed by volunteer helpers. Our facilities include census films, fiches, computers with internet access, and a small library.  Membership of the Society is £10 per year, with details of how to join on our website.  Many of our members are working to preserve records here in the north east; and 2009 saw the publication of our second CD- ROM of Memorial Inscriptions from Peterhead graveyards. We also have a growing collection of local photographs, copies of which can be purchased.
