Is My Family Huguenot?

The Library does not have the resources to deal with enquiries about Huguenot ancestry or undertake family research. Instead, family researchers are encouraged to use the Huguenot Library to carry out such work for themselves.

However, if you do have a query about your Huguenot ancestry or wish to know how to proceed with your research, please download this pdf document and visit the Family History page, where a number of other downloadable documents will help you.

Please note that as most of the Huguenot churches had closed by 1800 there is little information in our records after this period, apart from the French Hospital records. It is essential therefore before making an enquiry to work back to the early nineteenth century using civil registration (The National Archives), parish records or other sources.
