Image of the month
St. James, Hampton Hill is the latest in our Memorial Inscriptions collection. The church was erected in 1863 making it a comparatively young Church of England parish, but it has a sizeable churchyard containing 880 gravestones, and some are already totally illegible. The inscriptions can be searched from our Memorial Inscriptions Search page, and the book itself may be downloaded from our Digital Library page. There will be an article on collecting the inscriptions in the December journal.

Tip of the month
If you are engaged on a one-name study, and are continually on the lookout for current news on your study name, then you may find value in the Google Alert service. Just enter Google Alert as your Google search key, and Google will help you set up the alert. Information then flows into your email. There is a random element to what is served up, but it will relate to the Alert that you have set up. Worth a try!


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.
