With the increased interest in genealogical studies, mainly family history, there is an increase in the need for information. The records that have been held for many years are now fragile and frail, the area for storing documents has decreased and the funding of local research office has decreased.
The aim of the society is to preserve existing records while transcribing and collating new information. Most churchyards in Cambridgeshire have now had their monumental inscriptions (gravestones and the like) recorded for posterity by the CFHS or the Women's Institute. Parish records have been indexed and transcribed by members of the CFHS to preserve the original information while making it accessible to all.
