Our free email discussion forum and archived information are now hosted by Groups io. The forum is very active and members have a wealth of knowledge covering many years of research. The forum is only accessible to members who have successfully applied to join. Each contribution is the copyright of the donating member. Information stored in the archive is often confidential and we expect members to treat what they find with respect and discretion. For all these reasons, as well as to prevent spam, we ask you to give a reason for joining when you apply to become a member. Click here for details about the group. Resources on the io site include:
A searchable archive of members' emails since 2000.
Sheila's List - an index of members who will do lookups in their own genealogical resources
A photographic archive to which members can contribute
Useful local information for arranging research trips
A variety of local historical documents transcribed by members & the facility to upload any documents which you would like help in reading.
