To Join

You can join online by clicking the ‘Apply for Membership’ button and filling in the form and then paying. We use PayPal but you do not need a PayPal account to pay via PayPal, credit cards are accepted.

Once we receive your payment, you will receive an e-mail with your password. You will then be free to login and explore the site.

At this point, you can apply for a code to access the Worcestershire parish records, but please note that the allocation of codes is manual and doesn’t happen immediately on application. We have to wait to confirm your membership payment and for the volunteer who issues the codes to be available.

Sharing our interests

We like to share details of families being researched. If you would like to share yours, please enter the details in the ‘research interests’ box. The details we require for each interest are: surname, date range and place. You can put in as many as you want. Once we have confirmed your membership, we will add these to our database, attached by your membership number (to keep your details confidential).

If you have any queries or don’t want to apply online, please contact us.

You will receive a warm welcome.
