Friends

The Society of Genealogists receives no government funding so we are reliant upon donations and the support of our members to preserve our collections and modernise our services.

Becoming a Friend of the Society both supports us and entitles you to a range of exclusive benefits.  As a friend your donations will invested in making more of our records and documents online as well as crucial updates and improvements such indexing, new book collections and rebinding.
