Image of the month
Hampton Court Palace, just one of several palaces in our area. Topical at present as they are holding a summer festival of events over the period 9th to 25th June, including a luna cinema, and a palace garden festival, along with the regular attractions of a tour of the palace and gardens, and a visit to the maze.

Tip of the month
Do you get a bit confused over which family history society to approach if your interest is in some place within Greater London, an area covered by 9 societies? There is a gazetteer in which you enter the place name you are interested in, and it tells you which of these 9 societies you should be contacting. It's on our Research pages. Here's the link.


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.
