Föreningen för Smedsläktsforskning – FFS is an organisation especially focusing on research about blacksmiths and their families with roots in Sweden since the 1650s and on iron foundries.
FFS was founded in 1994 and its main task has been to create and publish a database of blacksmiths and their families. In August 2013 it contained information on nearly 250 000 persons and is steadily growing. Based on the database the organisation produces almost annually, a DVD and from 2013 also on a usb flash drive. Based on members’ research FFS strives to edit 1-2 leaflets on blacksmith families annually.
