The Anglo Scottish Family History Society is a branch of the Manchester & Lancashire Family History Society (MLFHS) based at Manchester Central Library. The ‘Anglo Scots’ branch was formed in 1982 by members whose ancestral origins were in Scotland and their aim was, and remains, the exploration of those ancestral roots and their subsequent links with the Manchester area. That research has widened and we now have members from America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and more. We hold regular meetings to share stories and research, our members have created a large database of Scottish-linked material, and we continue to support and encourage ongoing research into the Scottish diaspora.
