History, culture, language and environment

Established in 1873 the Société is a registered Jersey Charity. Our mission is to produce and facilitate research, and to share that knowledge with the widest possible audience for the benefit of our island community.

We achieve our aims through our active Sections, research collections, community outreach and collaboration with local and international heritage partners.
