St. Mary with St. Alban put on quite a show to thank us for providing them with a copy of all the inscriptions in their churchyard. Deputy Mayor James Chard was invited to witness the handover of the document which is now on display at the church for public access. In the picture Robin Field-Smith, Church warden, the Deputy Mayor, Roland Bostock, Joe Moffatt, Vicar, and Yvonne Masson. The full story will be in our September journal. See also the Youtube

Tip of the month
Which pages are exclusive to members only? Password protection is actually enforced page by page as necessary. Non-members can visit the Members section but will find most pages are hidden from them. The best way to see what is protected is to use the Sitemap, where all the restrictions are shown. It also shows how to see some public pages such as Memorial Inscriptions Content that can only be seen this way.


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.
