When you join our society, you gain access to online resources for your family research, and receive new articles in twice-yearly journals and newsletters. Our annual general meeting and other events, provide a chance to meet cousins and visit places of historical significance.

Find out more about Membership or  contact us by email to find out how you can join in.


We encourage you to share the stories and photos of your ancestors before they are lost, so generations of the future can discover their family history. Our editors can give you feedback and decide where to publish it.  All you need to do is send a draft. Donations of family objects or documents can be made for safe-keeping and sharing.  Our enthusiastic committee members can visit to review what you have and make copies in your home, wherever you are.

We also need people to help with working bees and other activities.


Printed journals and indexes are now available in our online shop, along with books produced by our dedicated members.
