The Scottish Association of Family History Societies (SAFHS) was founded on 4 October 1986, as a result of a need for individual societies to communicate with one another. Since then, its membership has grown, and now includes all established family history societies in Scotland, as well as several national and regional bodies throughout the world. Its main aims are to promote and encourage the study of Scottish family history, and to provide a forum for the exchange, collection and distribution of information among the member societies.
The Association strongly advises you to join the societies covering the areas of your research. The SAFHS offers a search facility http://www.safhs.org.uk/search.asp whereby you can search the websites of their member societies for your particular subject or topic (including surname search)

Many societies have more detailed contact information on their website and also give details of services they provide.
