Image of the month
Well, it came through the post earlier this year, a photo print addressed to the Secretary of the Society, with nothing to indicate who sent it or why. But thanks to whoever did send the photo. Those who were with the Society in 1988 can recall the 10 year celebration party, including this very finely decorated cake.

Tip of the month
This is another one mainly for One-name studiers, and is another useful source for obituaries, especially from overseas, provided by Legacy.com. All you have to do is fill out a few search parameters, including a keyword for your surname of interest, at this site and you will receive emails whenever Legacy.com finds a new obituary matching your profile.


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

Next Meeting

Our next meeting will be held on Thursday 21st July 2016 at Montague Hall, Hounslow. Doors open at 7.00 pm. This is our Open meeting, members and non-members welcome. Ad-hoc with members contributing short pieces. The aim is to focus on 'Family Health' but all contributions are welcome.

The Hounslow clinics

Providing support to existing and prospective members to research their family history is at the core of what our Society aims to do. We hope very much that the clinics starting 6th June at Hounslow Library will generate enough interest to become a permanent part of our programme. Please support this initiative if you are able.
