Many people visit this site because they are interested in family history or local history. The Society is pleased to make relevant information available. However, joining the Society helps support our work, and the research and publication on which much historical enquiry depends. Membership also has tangible benefits: members receive complimentary copies of the Society’s volumes as they are published, and may buy volumes from our existing stock at considerably reduced prices. The Society also maintains a small stock of second-hand volumes which members can buy at a reduced rate.
Our main social occasion is our AGM – which we try to arrange at different venues of historical interest around the county, with a lecture rounding off the formal business of the day.
There are two kinds of membership:
- Ordinary: from 1 January 2020 £20.00
- Group (Libraries, Universities and Societies): from 1 January 2020 £25.00 Overseas: £30.00
Membership is renewable on the 1st January annually.
