* British Association for Local History

Open Lectures & TalksUseful and Interesting Links 'We have included here some suggestions of national organisations which are of interest to local historians and whose websites provide useful information. In the section labelled "Local Societies" we have provided just a small sample of the many local history societies which now have their own website. Groups and societies dealing with local history vary widely in what they call themselves and what they do, not all have the term 'local history' in their title. There is a long list to be found in The Family and Local History Handbook. New ones, and their websites, are often mentioned in Local History News. If your group is considering having its own website those listed here may provide some examples.'
