Using the Society Research Service
This service continues to be available, supported by Society volunteers, during the present Coronavirus situation.
However the service will only operate via the web site and email systems. Regrettably we cannot accept postal applications at this time.
The volunteers who operate the Research Team may not have access to all the Society resources at this time but they use their Family History skills to help you break down that brickwall. Research is not limited to the Huddersfield & District area – we can help research across a much wider field. In order to help meet its running expenses it is essential for the Society to make a charge based on the time required for carrying out Searches and Research.
