Image of the month
From our 40th Anniversary celebrations. With David Hawkings (inaugural chairman) and Wendy Mott (member from 1978) unable to attend, it fell to Eileen Small (joined 1980) on the right, and Valerie Walker (joined 1983) to make the first cut into a tasty and very beautifully designed cake. There will be more about our celebrations in the September special edition of the journal, which the Treasurer has sanctioned will be a full colour edition.

Tip of the month
We have previously mentioned two really useful information leaflets provided by the Federation of Family History Societies - their Really Useful Information Leaflet 2018 (UK), and their Australasian Really Useful Information Leaflet. There is now a third important leaflet, their Really Useful North American Information Leaflet. These three may all be retrieved from the Federation's Research Tips - Useful Research Guides page.


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.
