Member Subscription

Register & pay for a BAFHS annual membership

Society membership is open to all family historians and those who have a general interest in family history.

Our activities focus on the cities of Bath and Bristol together with the county areas of South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.

Members receive a quarterly Journal about family history in our area, the opportunity to attend meetings held at two venues during most months of the year, and use of the Research Room. They can also list their surname interests in our on-line register and have a personal page showing all the surnames and places they are interested in. Access to the Register is available to all, but only members can have their interests listed.

The subscription year begins in April. Applications for membership are welcome throughout the year, in which case journals already published for that year will be supplied.
