'Founded in 1883 to promote the study of the history of Lancashire and Cheshire. Its sphere includes archaeology (both traditional and industrial), economic and social history, architecture and the arts, and folklore. Its range extends from antiquity to the more recent past. Although the Society is based on Manchester, its studies and activities embrace the region. Membership is open to all individuals and societies who are interested in the various historical aspects of the two (pre- 1974 reorganisation) Counties Palatine ... The Society aims to hold annual day schools, either self-promoted or occasionally in association with other organisations.'

In the UK, meetings are held in Lancashire, where there are 13 branches including the Heraldry group and Irish Ancestry group, and in London ... At Branch Meetings you will find family history and heraldry experts who are knowledgeable over a wide area of the UK - north of Liverpool and Manchester, right up to the Cumbrian and Yorkshire Borders ... Each Branch organises its own programme of events and activities ... Non-members are welcome at any of the Branch meetings.'

'THE LRFHS has five Groups ... Each Group has its own committee and organises monthly meetings, with interesting talks on a wide range of family history subjects ... A member of the Society can attend any Group meeting. Visiting non-members may be asked for a donation to the Society.'
