Using Masonic Records for Family and Local History


Find out about the history of Freemasonry and how to look up your Masonic ancestors' records.

Was your ancestor a Freemason? Diane Clements, the Director, explores the records found at the Library and Museum of Freemasonry. She also explains how this Library and Archive can help you research your family members.

About the Library and Museum of Freemasonry: It is the repository for the archives of the United Grand Lodge of England, the governing body of English freemasonry. Information about individual members is based on annual returns of members compiled by individual lodges and sent to Grand Lodge. The earliest returns date from the 1750s. These were used to create registers of members. Members are listed in the registers under their lodge and according to their date of initiation or joining.

This talk is hosted by the Society of Genealogists. There are no special entry requirements for the talk and you do not need to be a Member to attend. However, this course is specifically for people interested in tracing Masonic ancestors and are eager to understand the best ways of doing it. Expect a friendly atmosphere, an expert tutor and lots of detail.
