Welcome to the homepage of the "Society for Family Research in Franconia"! Here you will be informed about activities, events and publications of the Society. By means of a detailed overview of genealogical sources in Franconia as well as by information on our library and our archives we want to help you in searching for your ancestors.
The Society which was founded in 1921 has made it its business to promote and maintain
genealogical research in all its branches on a scientific basis.
It is mainly financed by membership fees and donations. The operational
field of the Society comprises mainly the area of the Bavarian administrative
districts Upper, Middle and Lower Franconia (see map), but also the neighbouring
regions in Upper Palatinate and Baden-Wuerttemberg. Its scope of activities includes
research on families, emigrants, expatriates and Huguenots as well as the
corporative and professional system.
The Society which is located in Nuremberg
regularly publishes scientific papers,
books and other publications. It organizes genealogical evenings, lectures,
guided tours and excursions. It maintains a library and genealogical archives.
Last but not least it gives its members advice on their genealogical research
work and also cooperates with other associations of a similar type.
The Society abstains from any form of politics. It currently has about
1100 members at home and abroad.
The GFF is a member of the "Deutsche Arbeitsgemeinschaft genealogischer Verbaende e.V." = DAGV (German Working Group of Genealogical Associations e.V.).
