LET’S SHATTER TWO MYTHS ... YOU DON’T NEED TO HAVE BERKSHIRE ANCESTORS TO BENEFIT... Many with no local ancestors draw actively on society products and services.... AND YOU DON’T NEED TO LIVE IN BERKSHIRE Plenty of members live far beyond its borders, some live overseas.
The society delivers resources and activities to meet the needs of people like you; people researching into families across the UK and overseas (and in Berkshire too). Would these services be useful in your research?

 


 A RESEARCH CENTRE IN READING, run by volunteers, where you can cross-search Findmypast, Ancestry Library Edition and many other worldwide resources - online, on CD and in microform and in print.
