Image of the month
This is the Lendy memorial in its beautiful setting of the Walled Garden, Sunbury. It is the only monument in the garden, but there are 26 garden benches with commemmorative plaques on them, and a further 21 memorial plaques placed in the flower beds, which are rather hard to find. Details can be found from our MIs Search page, or the whole document is available from our Digital Library page.

Tip of the month
This month the tip applies whatever you may be doing on your computer (using Windows anyway). You likely know that Ctrl Z undoes your most recent action, whether you may be updating a document, moving stuff around excel, working with file explorer, or doing almost anything else. But did you know that you can keep hitting Ctrl Z and previous actions can also be reversed? If you reverse too much, never mind, for Ctrl Y then reinstates each of your actions.

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.
