Welcome to the shop


For all family historians, genealogists and local historians with research interests in Berkshire, England.

The shop features all society publications, and a range of other products in electronic, print and microform formats. These include transcriptions and indexes, general and local guides for family historians, maps and a fine selection of local history books for Berkshire and adjoining counties.

You can also join the society, renew membership and order searches of the society’s databases from the shop.

Enter your membership number and the current coupon code when prompted in the Checkout process, and the discount is worked out automatically.

You will find the current discount codes in your June Berkshire Family Historian. You can also find this edition (and earlier issues of the magazine) in the Members' Area of this website, accessible from the Home Page.

A full explanation of how to use the discount codes appears on page 19 of the Sepetember 2017 edition of the Historian.
