Image of the month
This is our latest library acquisition, a large hard-cover book titled 'The Lloyds of Harley Street', generously gifted to the Society by Christopher Lloyd. The cover design, which runs right round the book, continuing to the inside covers, is the 1831 map of Marylebone by Peter Potter. The book is very well presented, 580 pages, including many colour plates of documents, portraits, and buildings. It includes references to Fulham, Cranford, Heston, Harlington and Hillingdon.

Tip of the month
Find My Past Fridays are worth a look each week, especially if you have a subscription running. On the Find My Past Home Page you will see a lozenge shaped icon saying "Find My Past FRIDAYS". Select it and it shows further icons for each Friday going back in time. Select the top one to see what has been added to Find My Past in the last week. It is then easy to select a dataset and start a search.


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 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 £15 per annum.
