The Kay Family Association UK


The Kay Family Association welcomes new members. Whether you are an experienced family history researcher or a newcomer setting out to uncover your Kay(e) roots the Kay Family Association may have what you are looking for.

Benefits of Membership

  • Kay Times: the Kay Times is published twice yearly and contains articles on Kay(e) family history by KFA members as well as news and tips to help you with your research. We also publish two bulletins each year which contain information that we feel may help members in their research.
  • Research: access to the Kay(e) Archives and assistance with your Kay(e) family history research
  • Annual Gatherings: an opportunity to meet with others with an interest in the Kay(e) family and learn more about your family roots. Since 1999 The Kay Family Association has held an annual Gathering usually in an area where there is a significant Kay(e) presence such as Bury, Bolton or Huddersfield. Our Gatherings include talks on Kay(e) family history, displays of Kay(e) memorabilia and we occasionally arrange visits to places like Gawthorpe Hall and Woodsome Hall which have strong Kay(e) connections.
  • Zoom Sessions: Covid has forced us to hold our AGMs and Annual Gatherings as Zoom sessions (hopefully temporarily). We are researching ways of staging talks and workshops as on-line sessions. This allows us to hold them more often, and to give overseas members a chance of becoming more actively involved.
