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.
Arrangements for Origins have changed. Please contact the Membership Secretary for details.
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.
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.

Update: We are now judging this year's entries and will be announcing the winner at the AGM in April. A very interesting collection of articles. Time to start thinking about next year.
