Image of the month
We are in progress at the moment of recording the memorial inscriptions at St. Mary's, Ealing, where part of the delight is to enjoy the interior of the church which contains 100 memorials, many of them coming from the stained glass windows. The interior design is the last work of the renowned architect Samuel Sanders Teulon, who was commended at the time (1872) for his transformation of a Georgian monstrosity into the semblance of a Byzantine Basilica.

Tip of the month
You will have heard of U3A, the University of the Third Age, but did you know that they produce a Genealogy Newsletter each month. It's an easy read, full of useful genealogy information. Here's a link to their latest issue, and more besides.


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.
