We can now provide facilities for members to pay subscriptions by credit card through PayPal. If you wish to pay by this method then go to our secure Online Shop. It is also possible to join the society through the Shop. [Note that currency rates in our Shop are regularly updated and may vary from the rates above].

Cheques for Membership should be made payable to "Suffolk Family History Society".

* Overseas Agents have done an excellent job over the years. However, with the advance of emails and online payments, their workload has reduced. It has therefore been decided that as Agents retire, their positions will not be refilled.
