The Rix Family Alliance was formed in 1979 by the mutual agreement of four families. 

The object is to promote and maintain an interest  in the history of the Rix families through research, discussion and friendly co-operation.  

The search for ancestors is an interesting, educational and worthwhile persuit and it is hoped that anyone interested will share their family history with the Rix Alliance. The aim is now to bring family trees together where we can. One avenue where this is working well is through  the DNA project which is run by Trevor Rix.

When the Rix Alliance started a quarterly journal was produced until 1990,  reducing to  a twice yearly  copy until 2011.

Back issues are available in PDF.  They do  provide a rich source of research  that  was completed over the years  by many  members.

Some copies are also available to  read on the website.

Research is very interesting and we learn a lot about our ancestors and how they lived. There is now a  page to share your story of where your ancestors started; where they moved to; how you got started with your research; how your research unfolded into a historical story.

If you find you don't have time to do the story please let us know if you have Rix ancestors, and who they were, so that we may add their details to our database.

Check out the  updates on the DNA project page  by  Trevor Rix.
