Image of the month
This image is taken from Ann Greene's talk on Hounslow's Special Constables in WW1, given on January 17th. The long service medal was struck in 1919, and was awarded to London's Special Constables who had served the duration of the war. See the March journal for a write-up on Ann's talk.

Tip of the month
This is one for immediate action. The General Records Office have announced that as from February 16th the price of birth, marriage and death certificates will be increased from £9.25 to £11.00, a price increase of 19%, so now is the time to make purchases if you have been holding back. The price of PDF copies of certificates will also rise from £6 to £7. This is the correct link for ordering BMD certificates . Don't use any other website.


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.
