A warm welcome to you from Buckinghamshire Family History Society. Founded in 1976, we are a group of over 1,500 family historians who have been helping each other with their research. Have a look around and see if we can help with your genealogy. Visitors are welcome to browse, registration is restricted to Society members.
Once again, we look forward to welcoming you to our annual Open Day, which will take place on Saturday 25th July 2015, from 10am to 4pm at The Grange School, Wendover Way, Aylesbury HP21 7NH.
This is the day when all of the Society's research libraries will be available in one place, including our Buckinghamshire names database, containing well over five million entries. Parish register transcripts and other Society publications will be on sale, and there will be lots of help and advice from friendly, experienced family historians.
Meeting Up With Relatives?
Open Day can be an opportunity to meet with others who may be related to you.
The Wooster Family Group - several of whose ancestral cousins have attended over the years - will again be exhibiting at this year's event. Anyone interested in the Group will be made most welcome. Check out the group's website at:

Aylesbury Calendars of Prisoners is now available for sale in the shop.
This DVD contains images of all the Calendars available, covering the period 1783 to 1892 for the Assize court and 1787 to 1909 for the Quarter Sessions. The calendars show the progression of the defendant through the courts. Starting as a pre-trial document, many are annotated with the results of the trial. Normally the trial would have been through the local petty sessions before being sent for trial in Aylesbury.
We are very pleased to have publications from the John Hampden Society in our on-line shop. This is part of a service that we offer to local history societies to promote and sell their publications. The John Hampden Society is unusual in that it's interest is in a person rather than a local town or village.
