Family History Show Online September 26th

 
We exhibited at the Online Family History Show in June.  It was a great success, with more exhibitors than at a live event and over 1000 visitors.
Now we are looking forward to a similar event on 26 September replacing the show at Kempton Park.
 
What will it be like?  You will find all the features of the physical shows, but from the comfort of your own home! Put your research questions to an expert, watch a free talk, speak to local societies, archives or genealogical suppliers.  See https://thefamilyhistoryshow.com/online for more information, tickets etc

New Publication - Wiltshire Constabulary

We have recently published our largest publication "Wiltshire Constabulary Police Officers Appointed 1839-1927".

At 523 pages it is only available in print, on CD  as a download through GENfair.

It is a transcript of original records held at the Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre, supported by two indexes; one by name and the other by police number. Wiltshire Constabulary re-issued its numbers as they became available.
