Meetings of the Society

Our meetings take place on the 3rd Thursday of each month at the St. John's Centre, St. John's Road, Isleworth, TW7 6RU. Doors open at 7:15 pm. Guests are very welcome. The map alongside shows the several bus routes to help you get there. Click the map for a full screen version. Meetings include talks on all aspects of family and local history. In addition we will bring our 'exchange journals' to the meeting, and on even months some of our bookstall as well. Society jumpers will be on sale, and we also run a small raffle. The talk begins promptly at 8:00 pm.

Print the programme of talks

You may wish to print yourself a copy of this programme for your own use, or to pin on a notice board somewhere. It's prepared as an A5 document, so you get two copies for the price of one. Here it is. Have your scissors ready.

Do you need a lift?

We are aware that some members would attend the meetings if they were given a lift. Follow this link if you would like to see who has volunteered to provide a lift in your area.

Are afternoons better for you?

If you like the idea of attending our meetings, but find an afternoon meeting suits you better, the Richmond Group of East Surrey Family History Society have given us an open invitation to attend their Saturday afternoon meetings, held on alternate 2nd Saturdays of the month, starting in January. The meetings are held in the Vestry Hall, 21 Paradise Road, Richmond with doors opening at 2:00 pm for meetings starting at 2:30 pm. This page shows the topics for their next few meetings. There is no charge, but a small donation should be made.
