Berkshire Family History Society — for family historians like you. Not everyone has Berkshire ancestors, although some of us do. Equally, some members have no Berkshire ancestors. But all family historians recognise a good family history society when they find one.

  • Join — if you are one of the many family historians living in, or close to, the Royal County of Berkshire...

  • Join — if you are researching Berkshire ancestors —  wherever in the world you may live

  • Join — to enjoy extended membership to 30th June 2019 (The normal membership year is from 1st July to 30th June). You receive all four copies of the society's quarterly magazine, the Berkshire Family Historian, for the year too

  • Around half of the members live locally in the Royal County of Berkshire. Four in 10 live elsewhere and right acrossthe UK. One member in 10 lives overseas, mainly but not exclusively in Australia, the USA, Canada and New Zealand.

The form includes a Gift Aid declaration form for UK taxpayers. Because the society is a charity, run entirely by volunteers, your membership payment counts as a donation. The next page explains the importance of Gift Aid to the society.
