Image of the month
It's time to get nostalgic. Our next meeting on 19th July is the 40th Anniversary, to the day, of our very first meeting as a Society on 19th July 1978. A few months later the Society published Vol 1 No 1 of our much esteemed Society Journal, and this was the cover. We will bring all the early issues of our Journal to the July meeting. Don't miss it.

Tip of the month
Have you ever wished you could see a definitive list of which Parish Registers can be found on FamilySearch, Find My Past, Ancestry, The Genealogist, on this website, on microfilm at the LMA, on FreeREG, held by a member of the Society, or in our library? That's a tough one, but for West Middlesex we have done our best to lay it all out in an accessible manner. Be surprised, go to our Parish Information page, and it's all there.


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 websites 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 St. John's Centre in Isleworth, 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 £15 per annum.
