Our chairman Ann Greene. I worked as a librarian for various local authorities, studying local and family history along the way, before finally moving to Hounslow Local Studies in 2012 and retiring in 2015. I have been researching my family history for about 25 years and firmly believe that you cannot properly research your family without studying the history of where they lived. To this end I am studying West Midlands History with Birmingham University. I am keen to encourage the survival of the West Middlesex Family History Society by involving young family historians and society members who are not able to attend our meetings and using social media to make more people aware of what we do.

Tip of the month
Make sure that you don't lose out on the 15% discount that all members are entitled to if taking out or renewing a subscription with Find My Past. You must turn Autorenewal of your subscription off. If you don't then your subscription will renew but without the discount. So turn it off. Find My Past will be quick to ask for a new subscription when the time comes. Then you can enter the discount code as we advise on the Members Discounts page.


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.
