The Society is keen to provide as much help to out-of-county researchers as it can.
Projects undertaken by members of the Society include the transcription of the census schedules and parish registers, the recording of monumental inscriptions, and the compilation of a Strays index. The results of these are available from the Bookstall in CD and microfiche form. Research information on Huntingdonshire and its parishes is available on the county page.
Due to lack of storage facilities, the society is currently unable to make the full library contents available at each monthly meeting. The public library in Huntingdon now holds our collection of books on a 'reference only' basis, thus enabling both members, and visitors to the area, greater access to the material.
The Society is currently limited in what assistance it can provide to its members. It cannot undertake substantial research on behalf of its members, but may be able to provide help with specific enquiries and can suggest the services of professional genealogists who have local knowledge.
For searches of the Huntingdonshire Strays Index, members' enquiries should be directed to: Mike Stephenson, 4 Shakespeare Road, St. Ives, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire PE27 6TR. Again, a current membership number must be provided together with an SAE or two IRCs.
There is also a 'HELP EXCHANGE' section of the Journal (see above) in which members can advertise what they are searching for, and this is free. Non-members can also advertise their requirement but there is a charge of £2. Enquiries and payment should be sent to The Huntsman Editor, Mr M.Stephenson, 4 Shakespeare Rd, St Ives, Huntingdon, PE27 6TR; if you are claiming the membership rate, you must include your membership number.
you find information about former inhabitants of Huntingdonshire who had moved
to foreign parts, please send the sightings - together with the source references
- to the Strays Co-ordinator: Mike Stephenson, 4 Shakespeare Road, St.Ives, Huntingdon,
Cambridgeshire PE27 6TR.
The Society welcomes help from all its members in undertaking projects and improving the services it can provide. Such assistance can take the form of:
