Somerset & Dorset
Family History Society


Taunton is a thriving group which always attracts good audiences for a variety of speakers at our Court meetings. Several of our members give talks but we also have guest speakers from other groups within the society and from outside. We try to mix educational and informative talks with fun. Once a year we hold members’ evenings when everyone is invited to participate if they wish and we have an annual outing as well as a Christmas Social evening. 

Talks are at Moose Hall, Tower Lane, Taunton, TA1 4AR, with car parking nearby, at 7.30pm.

Several members of our branch run voluntary sessions in Taunton Library on a regular basis when the public can book times to get help in discovering how to research their family histories.


There are no upcoming events.


We look forward to welcoming both old and new members. Use the form to send a message for further information or contact David Brown – [email protected].

While Group members have a good deal of local knowledge, they are not usually in a position to carry out documentary research. If you need research done, please see “How We Can Help.”
