International Relf Society
The International Relf Society

The International Relf Society founded in 1990,

is affiliated to the Federation of Family History Societies ,

and The Guild of One Name Studies.

The objectives of the Society are to:

a. Maintain an association of those interested in the origin, history, dispersion, and development of the name RELF and its variants.

b. Promote the preservation, security and accessibility of relevant public, and private archival material.

c. Foster the study of RELF genealogy, etymology, biography and related topics.

d. Publish research findings and other related information in the Society magazine, or other appropriate media.

The full constitution of the Society can be read here

Currently RELFE, REALF, RIULF, RELPH are the main variants accepted.
RALPH is often a derivative but it and ROLPH/ROLF(E) also have separate derivations and are often confused with RELF variants. We therefore monitor all these names.

The Society has a representation with the Guild of One Name Studies and is a member of the Federation of Family History Societies.

While this web page shows mainly Family History interests the Society does have information on some family names that are not included here.

The primary intention of the Web site is initially to spread the 'RELF' word and encourage new members.

We are hoping that the membership will give us feedback as to which way we go. This is our first attempt and we can develop the website to our requirements subject to technical restraints.
