The Sussex Record Society

The Society publishes scholarly editions of records relating to the county of Sussex in the United Kingdom. More than 100 volumes cover the history of Sussex from 1066 to World War I. We publish a hardback volume every year or so, and we have a steadily expanding online publishing programme. Many online records can be consulted and downloaded here. Many older and out-of-print books can be viewed onlineSRS Digital Editions offer free-to-download volumes of additional records, and will progressively publish online editions of the Society’s historic volumes. Copies of books in print can be bought here.

Members receive complimentary copies of all volumes as they are published. More importantly, membership supports the research and publication which underpin many aspects of local, family and social history.

Sussex Archaeological Society: Library re-opening

SAS has announced that after over a year of ‘working from home’ the Library Volunteer team are beginning to return to the library. It is likely to be the autumn at the earliest before they will be able to admit visitors and members, but you can email or phone them. More details here and here.
