The Somerset & Dorset Family History Society has around 1,500 members worldwide. Most of our members are people tracing their family history in one or both of the two counties but we also have members who have joined because they are interested in local history in our area or because they are researching families elsewhere but live locally and appreciate the advantages of having easy access to the expertise of our many experienced volunteers.
Our subscription year corresponds to the calendar year and whenever you join during the year, you will (unless you choose to be an ‘electronic member’, see below) receive all four issues of our quarterly journal The Greenwood Tree. Members who join after 31 October in any year are assumed to be joining for the following calendar year. You will become a member immediately, so your first subscription will cover 14 months, but you will not receive any journals until the following year. E.g. If you join after 31 October 2022, you will not receive the 2022 journals and the first issue you receive will be that for March 2023.
Starting with the 2023 subscription year (so available from 1 November 2022) the Society is introducing an annual ‘electronic subscription’ for members who prefer not to receive the hard copy of our journal The Greenwood Tree. The full-colour PDF of each new issue can be downloaded from the Members’ Area of the website and log-in details will be sent to all new members on joining.
Please choose the relevant category, depending on whether you live in the UK or Overseas and would like to take out an individual or family (two people at the same address) subscription. You may also subscribe for three-years (expiring at the end of 2025 if you join for 2023) and you will receive a discount on paying three annual subscriptions.
