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.
Thank you to all those who came to the 2015 Open Day at the Grange School.
A great amount of research was done and connections made. Facts have been provided to substantiate Quaker stories about the Webb family in Great Marlow. Also the Large family was traced in Eton and a police officer traced through the cases in our prisoner records.
There were a couple of items of lost property, which I have in my possession. Contact me vie the website to make arrangements. They may be easier to find than some of our ancestors.
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.
