A warm welcome to you from Buckinghamshire Family History Society. Founded in 1976, we are a group of over 1,500 family historians who have been helping each other with their research. Have a look around and see if we can help with your genealogy. Visitors are welcome to browse, registration is restricted to Society members.
Once again, we look forward to welcoming you to our annual Open Day, which will take place on Saturday 25th July 2015, from 10am to 4pm at The Grange School, Wendover Way, Aylesbury HP21 7NH.
This is the day when all of the Society's research libraries will be available in one place, including our Buckinghamshire names database, containing well over five million entries. The Society's latest digital and printed publications will be on sale, and there will be lots of help and advice from friendly, experienced family historians.
Open Day is your opportunity to talk to guest family history societies from around the country, and alongside them will be the customary range of suppliers of maps, books, software, archival materials and other services.
Entry is free, and tea and coffee will be available. Why not bring a packed lunch and make a day of it ?
Free parking is available at the venue; or by bus from Aylesbury bus station take Arriva service 50 towards Wendover, alighting on Wendover Road opposite Chaucer Drive, about eight minutes walk.
We'll be updating this page to list all of the organizations attending, so do come back to check out it out regularly.
Aylesbury Calendars of Prisoners is now available for sale in the shop.
This DVD contains images of all the Calendars available, covering the period 1783 to 1892 for the Assize court and 1787 to 1909 for the Quarter Sessions. The calendars show the progression of the defendant through the courts. Starting as a pre-trial document, many are annotated with the results of the trial. Normally the trial would have been through the local petty sessions before being sent for trial in Aylesbury.
We are very pleased to have publications from the John Hampden Society in our on-line shop. This is part of a service that we offer to local history societies to promote and sell their publications. The John Hampden Society is unusual in that it's interest is in a person rather than a local town or village.
We have published the historic records of Iver School. The CD includes indexed images of log books, admission registers with many details of school life.
