We are West Surrey Family History Society (Registered Charity No: 278091). Welcome to our website.
|We cover the ancient County of Surrey, both Rural Surrey and the Metropolitan Surrey area, i.e. those parts of the old county of Surrey which are now in Greater London. Our meetings are held in the western part of the County. See the Parish Map, which has a link to pictures of some of the Surrey Churches.|
|We transcribe records for Surrey and publish them for sale. See the Publications page for what we have. You can buy them by post or online through Genfair. We also have a number of Research Aids which can be downloaded FREE.|
|Our bookstall attends many events throughout the year. See the Events page to see where we will be.|
|We hold an Open Day in November where our Reference Library is available to consult by everyone and there is a large Family History Fair, including our own Bookstall (the largest Saturday Fair in the country after Who Do You Think You Are). See the Open Day page for the date of the next Open Day and a report on the last one.|
|We have meetings at six centres in West Surrey, where we have talks by experts and Members' knowledge sharing meetings. While most are in the evenings, we also have some afternoon meetings, especially during the winter months. See Meetings for the list of Centres and the talks we are giving.|
|We also have a number of Education events, including visits to The National Archives at Kew and walks in London. See Educational Events for the visits and walks.|
We have a number of services that are available to members only
(and a couple - 'Unwanted Certificates' and 'Family announcements in Camberley News' - which are FREE to all).
These are listed on the Members Area page.
Members also receive a quarterly magazine Root and Branch. See the Quarterly Magazine page to see what is in the current magazine and what we have previously included.
