West Middlesex FHS Members Area

This page is the entry point to various facilities we provide to our members. Most of the detailed information is protected by the Members Password, changed each quarter, and as provided in our Journal. The password, once entered correctly, is stored as a cookie, so you will not be required to enter it more than once. Some pages, such as the list of members and general searches on a surname, are available without requiring the password to be entered.

For the period from 28th September 2016 to 4th January 2017 a photo archive was also accessible as part of the Members Area, but it was decided at the Executive Committee meeting on 4th January 2017 that there was a small exposure to copyright infringement by making the photos available in this way, so access to the photos has now been withdrawn.
