Section 6: Research Interests

The Society may publish each year an index of persons being researched by members, to enable any person to contact another who is researching the same family, to share information and avoid duplication of research and expense. Each member is invited to submit up to six names for inclusion. With permission, new members’ interests are also printed in the society’s journal and will also appear on the Society’s website.

Accuracy in spelling of surnames and place names is essential. Should a family have more than one way of spelling a surname each should be listed as a separate name. Please use Chapman Codes (preferred standard) for State, County and Country, or write each word in full.

There are many duplicate place names in the world, please indicate fully, town and country (e.g. Devonport TAS AUS. Devonport DEV ENG)

Joint members are entitled to six Interests each. If you run out of space please email additional details to the Membership Registrar after your membership has been processed.
