The Society’s collections are particularly valuable for research before the start of civil registration of births marriages and deaths in 1837 but there is plenty for the beginner too, including the Free Family History Access area where beginners can get a taste of some of the online sources that will help them start their research. Details of the Help and Advice services available to members and non members can be found on the Society's website.

  • Can be a little expensive to join, or study there for the day, but if you're new to genealogy, the library contains a wealth of information, and the staff are extremely helpful. They seem to be making a lot of efforts to put material on line, and digitise their holdings. Make sure that you check their catalogue before you go, so you know exactly the resource you are looking for before you go, and can make the most of your time there.
  • A great resource for your research. Fantastic talks every week. Great social history books too
