Welcome to the Forest of Dean Family History Trust

Our mission is to provide website based resources for family history researchers whose ancestors and families lived in the Forest of Dean and its borders.

These resources which are being added to from time to time include Parish Registers, various searchable Indexes and a Forum which has not only proved to be popular but a very valuable tool for breaking down brick walls. We do not charge for these facilities and donations are therefore very welcome to help cover costs.

We do not provide a search service nor do we provide documentary evidence such as images of Register pages and Census etc. as to do so would in most cases be in breach of copyright.

Finally when you have a moment check out the Photo Gallery and view a huge collection of old photographs of people and places of the Forest of Dean.
