We have a large number of publications for sale on a variety of aspects to do with Hampshire, all of which are researched by our members. The current list is as follows:

NEW The Creation of ASWE 1947-1997. This publication was originally published up to 1969 by Norman Vidler with only a few copies ever printed. In Hampshire Libraries there is only one copy. The book has been re-formatted and updated to 1997 with the addition of photographs taken before the site was completely raised to the ground. This issue is a limited print and so copies will only be available at exhibitions that we attend (see the Our Diary page) or by post to the address at the bottom  of this page (beware postgage is expensive!) The book is on  sale for £4.50.

NEW Trace Your Family History. This is a brand-new, very colourful and modern book complete with details on how to carry out Family History Research. It is packed with diagrams, details, photographs and illustrations and is in full colour. This book is now on sale from the usual outlets at £4.50.
