As this site is quite large, this page is devoted to listing all the pages and details of what can be found there.
This page is an introduction and tells about the Centre and where it is situated, and details of how we can be contacted. There is also a short history of the Havant area and where we get our name from.
This is a new page which contains details of what is happening in the Centre from week to week.
Here you will find who our elected officers are.
Here are the details of how anyone either locally or many miles away, can be come a member. Many people think that we just concern ourselves with the area around Havant, but this is far from the truth as our interests are those of our members and spread worldwide.
We publish many publications - another indication of how wide our interests are. We only stock publications that we have produced and these are all listed on the Publications page together with details of how they can be obtained. We have to remind people that we can only accept cheques made out in pounds sterling and we cannot fulfil an order unless the postage and packing is enclosed with the cost of the publication(s) as stated.
We have now started producing our own CDs and this page lists those available. We have a huge project running at the moment to produce CDs for all the major churches in Hampshire which will take a long time to complete, but details of new ones that become available will be listed on this page.
Parish Registers Updates
Here you will be able to see listings of the Hampshire Parish Registers being transcribed by members and ultimately put on to CDs for sale. A listing is also posted to show three levels of how the transcribing is going. As each one is completed it will appear on the CDs section of this website.
This is the page that gives examples of how some of our indexes are laid out when they are published. Many of our indexes are not published because they are very large, not suitable for printing and copyright problems etc. All those listed on the publications page are in stock and available for purchase.
This page contains details of all the places and activities we have planned for the coming year in addition to our regular meetings, talks etc. If you happen to be around when we are in your vicinity, then come over and say "Hello" - we will be very pleased to meet you
