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 is a gathering at places of historical interest, sometimes having a connection with a famous Bliss and members can contact each other regarding common interests or to seek help with their own family history research.


The June 2020 Bliss Magazine has been posted to members containing news on our AGM, our new website address at Blissfhs.com, advice on your family history research, more articles on fascinating Blisses in the US and Canada, our work in the cloud, ideas on what to do when you have built your family tree and more facts about the Bliss Soldiers of WW1.


In view of the restrictions on personal contacts, the Annual General Meeting due to be held on Sunday 26 April 2020 had to be cancelled.  Members who had shown an interest  received the usual reports and were able to ask questions and make suggestions.  Following this, proposals were made and agreement sought.  All members will soon be able to read a full report in the June 2020 Bliss Magazine as it has been sent to all members.

Our best wishes to you all at this difficult time.
