The Nesbitt/Nisbet Society was founded in 1980 by Prof. John and Dolores Nesbitt of Iowa City, USA. Its aims are to assist genealogical research into Nesbitt/Nisbet families (whatever the spelling), to identify and preserve Nesbitt/Nisbet heritage, and to encourage communication and social gathering among all with Nesbitt/Nisbet interests.
The United Kingdom branch (with a membership spanning much of Europe) was founded in 1983 and has a membership of over 130 families. It collaborates closely with the branches in North America and Australia in organising regular gatherings in Scotland, producing a quarterly newsletter, and publishing a wide range of books. Its website was established in 1995 and moved to this address (in greatly expanded form) in September 2004.
A wide range of information on Nesbitt/Nisbet people, families, places and publications is freely available on this site. Membership also brings access to our newsletter and online back-issues, meetings and genealogical advice, as well as some publications that are not online.
