West Lothian Family History Society

About Us

The Society was formed in November 2000 to assist those researching family history and genealogy throughout the county of West Lothian.

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month, September to June, 7.00-9.00 pm in the Lanthorn Community Education Centre, Kenilworth Rise, Livingston, EH54 6JJ when we have guest speakers who give talks on a wide variety of subjects and Gie’s a Haun nights.

Our Library and Research Room is also located in the Lanthorn and is open Mondays 10.00am – 3.00pm and Thursdays 11.00am – 4.00pm, where our members can use the resources available.

On Wednesdays and Fridays our volunteers are in the Local History Library in Linlithgow (located in the Dalyell Suite, Linlithgow Partnership, Linlithgow, EH49 7EQ) from 10.30am – 3.00pm.

There is no need to make an appointment, just visit either location during opening hours where our experienced research volunteers will be on hand to assist members and non-members.
