It does not matter if your ancestors were not born in Weston-super-Mare or North Somerset. In 1804 the population of Weston-super-Mare was only 106 so it is not surprising that there are not many Westonians amongst us! Many of our local members have no connection with Weston until they themselves came!

Full Members

When you are ready to progress and once registered you can, in addition to the above:

  • add your own Research Query,
  • read (or download) Society Journal articles,
  • send emails to members for any purpose, e.g. where you have common Surname Interests or wish to collaborate on other matters.
  • post a comment on any items on the site available to affiliates, such as news items, Research Queries or members's Surname Interest records.
  • add & edit your own Surname Interests (there is no limit to how many you add),
  • read (or download) and search any Society Parish Transcripts,
  • read (or download) Society Journals,

We are continually working to improve your site and some forthcoming features to look forward to include facilities for uploading files and photos for sharing.

Whether a beginner or more experienced there is a place for you with us.
