Southport Group Home


 Due to the current situation with the Covid-19 Pandemic ALL of our groups have suspended monthly meetings and regular help desks until further notice to keep both you and our volunteers safe and well.

You will get updates regularly via our Facebook pages, and of course our Forum is still open and active and you are very welcome to join us there. We're sorry for any inconvenience caused and hope you understand.



Southport Family History Group was formed in 1982 by Michael Walcott and Dr. John Turner. The aim of the group is to help members research their genealogical antecendents and family history in general. The Society is dedicated to promoting interest in Genealogy, Family and Local History amongst people of all age groups by inviting speakers to our monthly meetings who cover a wide and varying range of subjects.
