Do you have Huguenots in your family tree?

This information about a new Huguenot Heritage Centre in Rochester, Kent, England just received from the Federation of Family History Societies.

The French Hospital has received initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for a Huguenot Heritage Centre in Rochester. The project aims to tell the story of the Huguenots, a group of some 100,000 French Protestants who fled from religious persecution during the 16th and 17th centuries. The Centre will include resources for researching family history, as well as a programme of events and activities. For further information please visit the website

There is an on-line survey for feedback on ideas for the Huguenot Heritage Centre. Please complete the online questionnaire. It will take about 5 – 7 minutes.
