On joining the Society you are invited to submit, on the form provided, a list of your family interests:
- Surname(s) being researched
- County and town or village
- Time period.
This information will then be displayed on the Society's website allowing people to contact you via an e-mail or by post, (e-mail & postal addresses are not shown) the latter will be forwarded by the Membership Secretary.
Only members can enter their interests, but anyone can search the database, giving members wider coverage and a more likely response. We also take part in the members’ interest scheme run by the Family History Federation, which means that surnames entered on our website are also visible on the Federation’s national site (https://www.familyhistoryfederation.com/surname-search). The Federation website links back to ours, so providing wider circulation.
If you are already a member and want to provide your interests or want to change your existing ones go to the membership page here.
