Forms for members: standing order, surname interests, birthbriefs

To record or update your surname interests, you can use this form to notify the membership secretary.
Finally, we have a form for members to use to submit their birthbriefs.


At the present time the only online facility that is exclusively restricted to OFHS members is the mailing list.

There are some notes about using MailMan email lists and about list etiquette at:

The LINK Scheme

This is a service provided within the Society for members who are unable to travel to the Record Offices which house the information which they need.

Most of England and parts of Scotland, Wales, Australia, Canada, Holland, New Zealand and the U.S.A. are covered by O.F.H.S. members who are willing to do a small amount of specific research for either out-of-pocket expenses or reciprocal research.

Research requests should be sent to the LINK Secretary (at the Holford Centre, see below) enclosing two stamped envelopes (International Reply Coupons if abroad). One envelope should be left BLANK – this is used to send the request on to a researcher; the other self-addressed – this is used to send the completed research back to the enquirer. The aim is to do the necessary research within six weeks or say why it cannot be done.

Please note that this service is operated by volunteers at the Holford Centre.

There are no restrictions on access to the following pages although they are mostly of interest to OFHS members.

Jill Muir has put together a very useful page of notes on Transcribing Monumental Inscriptions.

Members' web sites

Not just genealogy sites, these will give to you an idea of what members get up to when not researching their family history

Open (i.e. not restricted to OFHS members) email lists for family history research in Oxfordshire.

There are two main lists of interest, see the linked information pages for details:

The Rootsweb list OXFORDSHIRE
