Looking for your Roman Catholic ancestors? The Catholic Family History Society can point you in the right direction. Society members receive Catholic Ancestor, our journal, three times a year containing members' own researches and a wide range of helpful articles. An Annual Day Conference is held in October. Volunteers around the country transcribe early Catholic Registers, and these are offered free to current members when published. They may also be available at your local Record Office or public libraries. Non-members can also purchase these and all past publications.Please use the menu bar at the top of the page to explore this site.

The Venerable Elizabeth Prout,
the Mother Theresa of Manchester
Alison Bartholomew, MA, historian and archivist, will focus the talk on Elizabeth Prout’s work in Manchester and the establishment of her Order, linked to the social conditions in which she lived and worked. This will include some reference to the work of the Religious Orders in education more generally in mid-19th century England and Alison will consider some of the original sources which she has used.
