Image of the month
Churchyards in spring are particularly delightful. I guess the keeper of this stone at St. George's, Hanworth has a particular fancy for bluebells. Colourful and pretty. As we record the inscriptions these days we also take a photograph of each gravestone.

Tip of the month
It's more free access to Ancestry, courtesy of the London Metropolitan Archives (LMA). The LMA have announced that they are running a "virtual" Family History Fortnight with free access to their sources on Ancestry. This is the page where you can find out more.


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.
