The Society has launched a new shop which is located at shop.bucksfhs.org.uk. If you have a bookmark for the old shop can you please update it to the new location. The new shop has a cleaner fresher look to it and we hope that you will like it. One change is that customers are no longer required to register in order to make purchases however please note that it has not been possible to carry forward registration information into the new shop so if you want to have an account you will need to re-register.
Thank you to all those who came to the 2015 Open Day at the Grange School.
A great amount of research was done and connections made. Facts have been provided to substantiate Quaker stories about the Webb family in Great Marlow. Also the Large family was traced in Eton and a police officer traced through the cases in our prisoner records.
There were a couple of items of lost property, which I have in my possession. Contact me vie the website to make arrangements. They may be easier to find than some of our ancestors.
