The Society has been creating databases of Family History data for over 15 years. We can provide searches in the databases listed below.

The Society's Baptisms Database was started in 1999. The eventual objective is to record all baptisms from the parish registers of Buckinghamshire up to 1901. We have already recorded most of them - over 877,000.

The Society's Marriages Database contains all available register entries for marriages which took place in Buckinghamshire between 1538 and 1837 and we are adding all marriages up to 1901 (over 270,000 marriages).

The Society's Burials Database was started in 1999. The eventual objective is to record all burials from the parish registers of Buckinghamshire up to 1901. We have already recorded most of them - over 641,000 - but there are still quite a few to go. Some parishes are not complete.

We maintain a register of the names and locations which our members are researching known as "Members' Interests".

Members are invited to submit their surname interests for inclusion in our list of Members' Interests

The database contains a full transcription of the complete 1851 Census for Buckinghamshire with over 167,000 entries.

The Monumental Inscriptions Library holds a considerable number of files of churches with or without yards (possibly just foundation stones or plaques). There is also a collection of war memorial inscriptions.

We maintain an index of Buckinghamshire strays - i.e. Bucks people who have 'strayed' out of the county perhaps to be married or who have appeared on a Census somewhere.

This database is not yet complete. It currently contains details of over 200,000 names, extracted from every Will proved in The Archdeaconry Court of Buckingham (1680–1801) and Princes Risborough Testators proved in The Archdeaconry Court of Buckingham (1500–1858).

This is an extract from the records of the Winslow Workhouse. The transcription is unchecked and any data obtained from searches should be treated as such. The Society is grateful to Jenny Peel for permission to make this transcription available.

A search of a specific type of record will be undertaken for members by Volunteers at the Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies (CBS) in Aylesbury.
