Search document collection index

This index shows which surnames the Society has documents for in its collections. The documents themselves are not yet online and so can only be viewed at the Society, or in some cases, copies ordered through the Search and Copy Service. Documents may be either original sources such as  birth, marriage and death certificates, deeds, wills, marriage settlements, apprenticeship indentures, letters etc., or transcripts of records such as pedigrees or research notes.

We are currently in the process of digitising the documents, which will be put online in due course.

Additions to the document collection

Any new material for the Society's Document Collection such as birth, marriage and death certificates, copies of wills (especially un-probated ones), family trees etc are always welcome. Please give any items to the staff in the Middle Library or send it to the Society care of the Head of Library Services. Donations are noted in the Genealogist's Magazine and any "new" surnames are added to the index.

Important Notice

There is also much unbound material on families and surnames in the Society's Special Collections which are accessed by a comprehensive surname card index in the Lower Library. Please note that those names are NOT included in this index. If you would like to know if a surname appears in the Special Collections index, please enquire via the Search and Copy Service.
