Transcripts of the Parish Registers of West Surrey Poor Law Index, Surrey Monumental Inscriptions Indexes, Surrey Soldiers who died in WW1, the IGI and more will be available together with microfiche readers where needed. There will be a large selection from the Societys Reference Library to look at and will include Surrey items, London/Middlesex items (including the Victorian A-Z of London) and some that cover the whole country such as Phillimores Atlas of Parish registers. For those wanting to find out if anyone in the Society is researching the same name, the Members Interests files will be available, together with the Total Descent Charts. Volunteers will be on hand to give help and advice with these resources.
