Image of the month
St. Thomas of Canterbury, Fulham, a Roman Catholic church. The church has an imposing spire and a churchyard including 467 gravestones, for which the memorial inscriptions have just been added to the website. The MIs can be searched from the Memorial Inscriptions Search page, and the book of inscriptions is available from our Digital Library page.

Tip of the month
Legacy.com is a free site, sponsored by Ancestry, where anyone is invited to create an obituary. There are search filters for country, state or county, city and date range. It was a bit difficult getting the search criteria right, but it had 474 Bostock obituaries in all - which was quite a haul.


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.
