UPDATES
The group has recently created a brand new historical database to  provide a collection of photographic, video and audio material that has been given over the years. The aim is to categorise any information previously collected so as future generations can easily search for details about their own family history and previous events . It is still early days but we will be seeking funding and volunteers to manage the new database with the hope of making the collection available on-line.
Sep 2017 - The FOIHT community window at Canary Wharf Plaza has now ended and proved to be yet another grand success.
Sep 2017 - We have been invited to exhibit at the
opening weekend at the craft central at The Forge in West Ferry road from 29th Sep to 1st Oct - free admission - for further details follow the link below.
Membership is now open
Only £10 per address yearly from Jan - Dec. Your membership will entitle you to a minimum of 2 newsletters per year.  Back issues for previous calendars and newsletters available for a small donation.  
Your Support is important to us.
