In 1973 the Lancashire Family History and Heraldry Society was founded as the Rossendale Society for Genealogy and Heraldry, with meetings at Bury and Rawtenstall.
When the Society adopted its present title on 1 January 1985, it was decided that the Rawtenstall group would become the Rossendale branch. We cover all the areas administered by the present Rossendale Borough Council: Bacup; Edenfield; Haslingden; Rawtenstall and Whitworth.
