As the lockdown for Covid-19 is continuing, the Society has decided to cancel all the Centre meetings in May and June. If this should change, this message will be altered and there will also be further information on the Centre pages (see Meetings above).

However the website is still open and on the Members Area there is information which you might find useful. If you are a member and do not have a Username and password or have forgotten them, then please contact the Webmaster at If you are not a member you can join, see Membership above, for details.

We are West Surrey Family History Society (Registered Charity No: 278091). Welcome to our website.

We cover the ancient County of Surrey, both Rural Surrey and the Metropolitan Surrey area, i.e. those parts of the old county of Surrey which are now in Greater London. Our meetings are held in the western part of the County. See the Parish Map, which has a link to pictures of some of the Surrey Churches.
We transcribe records for Surrey and publish them for sale. See the Publications page for what we have. You can buy them by post or online through Genfair. We also have a number of Research Aids which can be downloaded FREE.
Some Parish Registers indexes to Baptisms, Marriage and Burials are now available through Genfair to download to your own computer, PDF files. More parishes being added all the time.
Our bookstall attends many events throughout the year. See the Events page to see where we will be.
On the Saturday of the first weekend in November we hold a Family History Fair where our Reference Library, Memorial Inscriptions and Members' Interests are available to consult by everyone. The Society's Bookstall is always in attendance.
Unfortunately the 2020 Fair has had to be cancelled, but we hope to be back in 2021.
We have meetings at four centres in West Surrey, where we have talks by experts and Members' knowledge sharing meetings. While most are in the evenings, we also have some afternoon meetings, especially during the winter months. See Meetings for the list of Centres and the talks we are giving.
We also have a number of Education events, including visits to The National Archives at Kew and walks in London. See Educational Events for the visits and walks.
We have a number of services that are available to members only, including electronic copies of other Societies' Exchange Journals (and a couple - 'Unwanted Certificates' and 'Family announcements in Camberley News' - which are FREE to all). These are listed on the Members Area page.
Members also receive a quarterly magazine Root and Branch. See the Quarterly Magazine page to see what is in the current magazine and what we have previously included.
