Tip of the month
How best to search the censuses using partial information? There are several ways of course, and that's just using Find My Past. Suppose you want to find someone in the 1901 census. You don't know their age, but you do know where they were born. You need to do the search using the tailored search screen specific to this census. At top right of FMP search pages you see 'A-Z of record sets'. Select that and enter 1901. That lets you find the actual census dataset where you can do your search using various filter keys such as 'Birth Town'.


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.
