Image of the month
This map is the 1812 New Map of London produced by Langley & Belch in 1812. It is one of 46 historic maps of London donated to the Society by Colin McDonald in March this year. The collection also includes the 24 map set Stanford's Library Map of London (1862), and the 16 map set of Westminster, the Borough of Southwark, and surrounding 10 miles, by Rocque, Parr and Howgego (1745). Click and click again to see much more detail from this map.

Tip of the month
Keeping up to date with good sources is not easy, but you can often get automatic notification of additions to a service. One example of this is to be on the mailing list of Deceased Online. That way you will automatically be advised as they include new cemeteries in their database. All you have to do is to register yourself with them, from their Home Page which is free.

Our aims
The Society aims to encourage and assist those involved in the study of family history and genealogy in the western part of the ancient English county of Middlesex. See also our Objectives page.

Using this website
The website contains much information about the Society, and provides general assistance in providing links to other websistes of use to Family Historians. You may explore the site using the menus above, including to use the Sitemap, where you can see all our pages at a glance.

For example under Research and Indexes you will find pages which tell you which members of the Society hold some of our special assets, Parish Registers, Indexes relating to Places, and other General Indexes.

New members
We are always keen to welcome new members. Benefits of membership include attending our monthly meetings at Montague Hall in Hounslow, where you can meet like-minded souls, many of whom have been enjoying this hobby for a long while. You will also receive a copy of our Quarterly Journal. Joining instructions may be found on our How to join the Society page. Attending our meetings is free, and you may come as a guest just to see what goes on, if you wish. Cost of membership is a modest £12 per annum.

Society news

Our next meeting will be held on Thursday 19th May 2016 at Montague Hall, Hounslow. Doors open at 7.00 pm. The focus of the meeting will be a talk by Kathy Chater titled Film Archives for the Family Historian.

New Members Area added

This is a significant addition to the website. The new area (use Quick Link above) provides members with the facility to search many of our indexes online. The indexes include Baptism, Marriage, and Burial records; also Memorial Inscriptions and the Protestation Returns of 1641-2. You will be asked for a password, which I cannot publish here, but is in the March Journal.
