More than helpful in Sherborne
Oct 2014 • Couples
We visited the Sherborne History Centre soon after we arrived in the UK. We were investigating the family connections that originated in this town. After some initial conversation about our objectives one of the very helpful volunteers assisted us with our investigations. The help that was given was quite unexpected and was given enthusiastically. With their assistance we achieved some good progress on our family history searches. A very worthwhile place to start or continue your genealogical research.

Tracing Dorset Roots
Jun 2014 • Couples
The staff at the Somerset Dorset Family History Center was so generous with their time and sharing their knowledge. We went to trace our family roots in Dorset, and they pulled one book after another off of the shelves to help get us started, then did a surname search to find one branch of the tree that we knew nothing about. I can't say enough good things about the staff!

Searching your family history?
Dec 2013 • Solo
This is a great place to visit, if you are searching for your ancestors in Somerset or Dorset. The people are friendly and helpful and happy to help you if you are stuck. You can use computers and their papperwork for searching for graves or tombstones in these counties. There is a place to drink teas and coffees, toilets and you can chat to the people if you get stuck, who are really helpful to help you. There is a fee to use the place but if you find information you are looking for, it is well worth it. The only downside is that it can be limiting compared to the internet but since you can use their machines, it is not bad.

Perfect for Local History and Family History research
Aug 2013 • Solo
The Family History Centre is the headquarters of the Somerset & Dorset Family History Society, and a great place to visit to progress your family history research. So many people nowadays rely solely on their computer at home, and don't realise that a visit to a place like the Family History Centre can help to solve the most difficult problem. The Centre is run by a team of volunteers who are very willing to help, whether you're a novice or an old hand. You can talk to people with a depth of experience in all aspects of family history and local history; use the library and large collection of parish transcriptions; or make use of the network of computers. You don't have to be a member to use the Centre and I can't think of a better place to visit if you're interested in family history. You can also buy coffee and a biscuit for just 50p a cup!
