Welcome to the Midland Ancestors Family History Shop

Our Society is the principal Family History and Heraldic society for the counties of Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire.  This includes the areas of  ‘old’ counties, as they existed before the major boundary changes of the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as the areas brought into them by those changes.  In particular the modern metropolitan boroughs of Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall and Wolverhampton (collectively known as the West Midlands) are within our area.
