Members interest

In 2007, the society initiated a project to gather the research interests of its members and publish them, initially in book format, followed by placing the information on the internet.  Nearly twelve hundred research entries were submitted by members and these were entered into a computer and carefully checked by volunteer members.

Every endeavour was made to list entries as given, in a consistent format and no responsibility is taken by the society for the reliability of information supplied. About 60% of the entries were checked by members themselves with the remainder being checked by other society members whose assistance is gratefully acknowledged.

From that original endeavour, the web-based Members Interests will now form a permanent part of the society's web site. New members will be urged to add their research interests and lapsed members will have their entries removed.  It is envisioned that the Members Interests will grow to be a very important part of our society membership allowing members the opportunity to gain contacts which otherwise would not be available to them.

Members who would like to add new entries to the website, please click here to download the Members Interests Application Form which is to be completed and forwarded to the Secretary. Click here to open the instructions for completing the Application Forms.  Any changes or deletions to entries in the Members Interests are to be forwarded to the Secretary.
We hope you find the Members Research Interest section of our website interesting and useful in obtaining contacts with people who may be researching the same families you are.
The Chapman codes have been used for counties, states and countries.

All enquiries are to be made directly to the contributor and should include the Surname being researched as it appears in the list.  
To access details for the contributor, please click on the number at the far right of the entry.  You will either be presented with a partially completed email requiring your personal details to be added or the name and address of the contributor who has requested you contact them via a letter.  Please include a stamped addressed envelope for a reply.
