Exchange Journals

Journals of other Family History Societies are now available on our website. For many years FHSs have exchanged paper copies of their magazines and journals. As Societies move to exchange digital copies we are able to put these on our website so our members can read them. Paper copies were only available at Society meetings or by post so many more of our members now have access to them.

BucksFHS Shop upgraded

The Society has launched a new shop which is located at shop.bucksfhs.org.uk. If you have a bookmark for the old shop can you please update it to the new location. The new shop has a cleaner fresher look to it and we hope that you will like it. One change is that customers are no longer required to register in order to make purchases however please note that it has not been possible to carry forward registration information into the new shop so if you want to have an account you will need to re-register

The John Hampden Society is unusual in that it's interest is in a person rather than a local town or village.
