Image of the month
At our 40th Anniversary meeting in July Society archivist Yvonne Masson exhibited some items from her archives, one of which was our very own 2003 calendar, which is illustrated by 12 excellent sketches of our parish churches by Ken Huckle and Ted Dunstall (past members). It's a lovely calendar, and an excellent keepsake. Sadly it didn't make the Society any money. The committee somewhat overestimated how many would be sold. They had 600 calendars printed, but only sold about 300. As always - click the image for a full screen view.

Tip of the month
Companies House is where new companies have to be registered, accounts filed and all directors identified. There is now a Beta Search Service on the internet providing free searches either on company name, or by individual, and you can do a surname search retrieving many records at a stroke. An individual's record will give their full names, and month of birth, their occupation, and all past and present directorships. Lots of unexpected detail to be found. This is the link.


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.
