Welcome to this web site
of the former
Family and Local History Indexing Group ("FLHIG").
|History of the Group||
FLHIG was formed in June 2004 from the former Genealogical Group of the Society of Indexers (SIGG), continuing with similar aims.
SIGG had is beginnings in April 1993. Initially all its members were also members of the Society of Indexers, however with an increasing proportion of members who were not also members of the Society the decision had to be made to reform as a non-affiliated group. FLHIG retained associate status with the Society of Indexers but was established as an independent not-for-profit UK-based organisation.
In fact FLHIG never got off the ground, and by
2008 it was clearly defunct. The webpages of SIGG/FLHIG
are now maintained as a static archive. By this means the valuable articles published in the
SIGG Newsletter remain available to the public.
The aim was to provide a forum for
the discussion of topics of common interest to those concerned with the
indexing of all genealogical materials whether these are original records
(such as parish records, wills, marriage allegations, newspapers etc), or
genealogical books and periodicals.
FLHIG retained the
the former SIGG Newsletter (SIGGNL). Further details including the
contents of past issues can be found by clicking on the "Newsletters"
A selection of articles from past
newsletters can be accessed by clicking on the "Articles" button above.
Many members of
involved in one or more individual genealogical indexing projects. These
projects are not described on this site except to the extent that they are
referred to in articles. However, in furtherance of the Group's aims to aid
good indexing practice in genealogy, we present here some group projects
whose purpose is to aid genealogical indexers generally. To learn more click
