Our mission is to facilitate Bliss genealogical research, the celebration of the Bliss name and fellowship with all who are connected to the name in all parts of the world.

The Bliss Family History Society was created in August 1983 to help members trace their Bliss ancestors, build their own family trees and share information, experiences and to bring distant relatives together.  That was before the internet gave individuals almost all that information on a multitude of websites, to which more and more information is being added almost every day.

Today, the Society publishes the Bliss Magazine in June and December each year containing reports of its activities, information about its member’s family history research, articles produced by members, articles about Blisses of the past and any other items of interest to members.

Every year, there has been a gathering at places of historical interest, sometimes having a connection with a famous Bliss and members can discuss with each other items of common interests or to seek help with their own family history research. However, during the Covid-19 pandemic this has not been possible.

BLISS MAGAZINE

The June 2021 Bliss Magazine is in preparation and will be posted to members later in June. It will contain a report on our AGM in April, an invitation to join in making Bliss family trees, reports on more of our Zoom Meetings, articles on fascinating Blisses and more facts about the Bliss Soldiers of WW1. Since posting the December Magazine, two more sources has been found for identifying US Soldiers who were in WWI and details of 170 missing from previous editions will be available in subsquent editions.
