Subscriptions are at present £8.00 per annum for Individual Membership & £10.00 for Family Membership (1 copy of Journal). Overseas members wishing to receive their Journal by air mail should add £2.00. All overseas payment should be made in sterling (U.K. Pounds). This should preferably be by sterling cheque payable to The Isle of Axholme F.H.S., drawn on a bank with a branch in England. Alternatively by Sterling Money Order.
On joining the Society, you will be asked to fill in a Member's Interest sheet so as to supply us with a copy of your Family Tree. This need not be anything more than your first and possibly sketchy attempt - you would not after all need help if you had a comprehensive chart of all your lines! At the bottom of the main menu on the left of this page there is a downloadable file called Family Tree.pdf that contains the Members Interest Sheet. (You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to be able to read and print off this sheet) We do ask that you don't send us large or numerous sheets of paper as we do not have the space to store them all. There is also a downloadable Application form also under the "Membership" Link.
The information from the Member's Interest Sheet is extracted by our Editors and published in the next issue of The Islonian, the Journal of the Society which is published quarterly. In addition to circulating the Journal to each of our members, we also exchange Journals with fifty other Family History Societies. These entries in the Journal frequently result in contacts being made with people who have similar interests.
The Family Trees are also given to our Records Co-ordinator, who is able to cross check your chart against information in his computerised records.
If you would like to join the Society, please fill in the Application Form and and the Family Tree Form from the Membership page, and send them both to the address found on the bottom of the application form.
