August 2010 the Society decided that all publications will only be produced
on CD. A review of paper publications has been carried out and those we
considered still relevant have been transferred to CD, many often re-indexed
and amalgamated with other information from our archives. Over the next
two years the Society will be transferring many of its archives to CD
– new additions will be added to the list below and details also
circulated to other Societies plus the Family History press.
