ISBGFH sponsors annual luncheons and nationally recognized speakers at the National Genealogical Society and Federation of Genealogical Societies conferences. Twice yearly, those lectures are made available as lead articles in British Connections.

The first volume of this publication, under another name, Newsletter, was published in 1979. The name change to British Connections appeared in the second quarter issue, 2000.

Watch future issues of British Connections for a timeline and historical review of the activities of this thirty-some year-old organization, the International Society for British Genealogy and Family History.
