A5 publications available as downloads

All 39 of our A5 Parish series publications, the three Books of Trade, Compleat Parish Officer and Handy Book of Parish Law are now available as downloads through Genfair. Click the appropriate link to go to the Genfair page. The forthcoming Spring 2018 sales leaflet, due late March, will reflect the changes.

Making these titles available as downloads, with a reduced price and no postage costs, should make these useful publications much more affordable.

New publications - PR transcripts, Manorial Court records and GWR Accident Hospital records

Parish Register Transcripts

The transcripts of baptism and burial parish register transcripts for Cricklade St Sampson, Little Cheverell and Swindon Christ Church are now available.

Cricklade St Sampson - Available as a printed book, an eDownload and as part of CMB 36, all through Genfair, or the book and CD from our Resource Centre.

Manorial Court Records

The manorial court records team have completed their first two titles, for Hilmarton & Goatacre and Holt. Due to its large size, Hilmarton & Goatacre is one of our Lulu titles. However, both are available as downloads through Genfair.

 A4 County Series of Publications

 We have reviewed and revised our A4 series of publications. They are now the 'County Series' matching the similar A5 'Parish Series'. Each title has its own number and all are available as downloads through Genfair, as well as from our Resource Centre

We have published one new title, County Records No 53 Great Western Railway Accident Hospital, which provides information on patients dealt with between 1883 and 1916. Available through Genfair as a book or download, or as a book from our Resource Centre.

 

2017 Family History Day - Steam

Dig Deep into your Family History!


Thirty organisations had stands at STEAM in Swindon when the Society's Family History Day took place in the giant Great Western Hall.

Whether visitors needed help and advice to continue research already started, or were not sure where to begin, the WFHS team and many other societies, groups and companies were only too happy to help.  Visitors were able to purchase CDs, books and equipment to enhance their research, and they were able to listen to talks.

Click here for details of the stands and links to individual web sites.

In 2018 there will be two important family history events in Wiltshire:

-  12 May: WFHS annual Family History Day at Wilton, near Salisbury

- 30 June: South West Area Group of FHSs Family History Day at STEAM

Free Name Indexes to our Publications

We are now able to provide free name indexes to all of our 34 CMB titles and 4 of our other digital publications. All indexes are pdf files and can be viewed on screen or downloaded and copied and printed. A Wiltshire map showing the distribution of the CMB titles is also available to view and download. Access to the Free Name Indexes page is through our Publications page.

Downloads for all parish transcripts

Following on from making all out published parish register transcripts available on the CMB series, we have now made our parish transcripts themselves available as downloads.

Each download transcript is exactly the same as the paper based transcript, available at between 50p and £1.50 less than the paper transcript and, of course, no postage costs.

These downloads were created because we realised that not everyone wanted a bundle of transcripts.

Parish Register Transcripts available as downloads

Over the years we have made our parish register transcripts available on microfiche, in books, on CD-ROM and as look-ups through Find My Past. Now, 24 of our products are available as downloads through our stall on Genfair. The downloads are exactly the same as the files available on the linked CDs. Providing this facility is something that we know people want and we are happy to oblige.

The products are all 21 of our CMB CDs published to date and the three CDM marriage CDs.

Prices for each download is £14, £1 less than the linked CD, but with no postage costs and no waiting.
