'We may be a relatively small group but we have achieved a great deal since our foundation in 1986, most notably through the Burntwood Memorial Project, which honours local servicemen, and through our Transcription Project. Established members welcome and give advice both to members old and new and to non-members who are interested in furthering their own genealogical research.'

'Since its formation in 1985 the Society’s membership has grown to over 370, amateurs and professionals, of all ages and from all walks of life. It has held more than 200 lectures ... and has arranged more than 150 visits. The Society’s steady growth in membership, the growth of its reputation in the Lichfield area and beyond and the regular “full house” attendances make it the envy of many similar groups and a tribute to the many people who have served it ... The Society’s reputation is such that it can attract speakers respected in their professions from all over the UK and from abroad; surgeons, engineers, biologists, chemists, physicists, archaeologists, medical doctors, in fact anyone with an authoritative view on an interesting subject.'
