Our Full Members have access to our library material, and all of our research aids in the form of parish transcripts, and a range of other transcripts. There are further benefits to becoming a Full Member, such as viewing (and downloading) our Journals that have been published over the years - see our Membership page for more details. We look forward to you joining us, and even meeting you at one of our 10 Monthly Meetings - should you decide great value full membership is for you.
