Aims of the EFHA
To promote and encourage the public study and research of family history, heraldry and local history with particular reference to all branches of the Entwistle family and its variants throughout the world.
To promote the preservation, security and accessibility of archival material in relation to the above objectives.
To disseminate the findings of that research.
Who we are
The Entwistle Family History Association was set up in 1999 by a group of people who wanted to find out more about their family roots and to help others who wanted to do the same.
