This is where Members of the SDFHS can exchange family history news, discuss their research and help each other. To access this area you will first need to join the Society, see:

No New Posts How to register

If you are already a member of the SDFHS, go to 'Register' and you will be prompted to fill in details to enable you to participate in this special area for Members. You will need your membership number - this has up to four digits and can be found above your address on mailing inserts from the Society. If you can't find your number, then please e-mail and we will confirm it for you. Once you have registered, your application to join will need to be approved by an administrator and this may not happen instantly but we will try to do this as soon as possible. You will then have full access to the Members' Area where you can discuss your research, post useful information, or just chat generally about family or local history with other members. We also post original genealogical data here and you can download recent issues of ‘The Greenwood Tree’ (our journal which is published four times a year).

No New Posts How to search

You can search the boards to see if anyone has posted about a name or place in which you are interested, even if the name/place in question doesn't occur in the title of any posts. Click on 'Search' on the horizontal menu at the top of any page.
