Historical Societies[edit | edit source]

No history societies could be found for the Channel Islands in general. There is one society that specializes in Jersey history,
The Societe Jersiaise that is dedicated to the study of Jersey archaeology, history, natural history, the ancient language and the conservation of the environment.

However there is a plethora of Museums on the different islands providing rich sources of information about their history. Several sources are listed below:
