The Society

The Alderson Family History Society (AFHS) was formed in 1983 and owes much to the research previously carried out by the late Surgeon Captain Basil R Alderson RN and the late William Oswald Alderson.

Most modern Alderson family lines can be traced back to Swaledale, in North Yorkshire, England, where the name was common in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and where many families remain today.

Spelling

As a ‘one name’ society our focus is on the ALDERSON name, but if we want to understand the relevance of old records, we cannot be a ‘one spelling’ society.
