We are a friendly group that meets three times a year, to provide an opportunity for local people with Suffolk ancestral interests to get together, do some research and exchange experiences.

We also have an opportunity to help represent the society at the local family history fairs held at Woking (pictured), Bracknell and Central London.




The West of London Group meetings are held on Saturdays, 2-5pm, at:

          Bishopshalt School
          Royal Lane
          UB8 3RF

All members and their guests are welcome, also anyone who is not yet a member but would like to consider joining.

Various books, and a good selection of Suffolk parish registers, the IGI, and other research material on CD and microfiche is available.



You are welcome to bring your own laptop to save possibly waiting to use ours.

Our speakers subjects cover a wide range of interesting interests.

The school entrance is located on Royal Lane a short distance from Hillingdon Hospital to the south, and the A4020 from Uxbridge to the north. When through the gate, follow the path round to the left, past a 1960s building, to a Victorian building with a bay window at the far end where there is plenty of free parking. Our meetings are held in the ground floor bay window room - along the corridor on the right.



Hillingdon Family History - Another family history society that meets regularly in Hillingdon at the Baptist Church, Hercies Road. A fully equipped Research room is available some Fridays and Saturdays
