The Research Forum

The Research Forum can now be used for queries for members' research which does not have to be limited to North Somerset Families.  We have many local members who are researching families from elsewhere and we would like to be able to offer suggestions for furthering their research.  If your research is stuck please post your question here and if you can help other members please consider adding a comment.

It was recently agreed by the Committee to revise the issue dates for our Journal, 'Buckets & Spades', therefore, the new dates for 2019 will be March, July and November. This slight change will allow for consistent spacing between the editions which, in turn, will be beneficial for preparation and distribution purposes. Members, please note the new dates for submitting your items for 'Buckets & Spades are now 28 February, 30 June and 31 October. Many thanks and the Editor looks forward to receiving your contributions.

Affiliate Members
published by Pat Hase on Wed, 16/01/2019 - 20:19

We shall stop having Affiliated Members when the new Web Site goes live at the end of this month.  We hope that those of you who have enjoyed the facility of being an Affiliated Member will now join as a full member so that you can continue to access the Research Forum along with the additional benefits which full membership brings.  The annual cost of Full Digital Membership to our Society is actually less than the cost of buying just one marriage certificate.  Please consider upgrading your membership before the change to the web site takes place – we don’t want you to lose out.
