The Centre is on the first floor of this building
We are quite a young organisation now being founded just twenty-two years ago, but during that time we have done our best to keep growing and so have a very wide range of research material not only in the printed form but on computers, fiche and CDs.
We have seven on-line computers with access to FindmyPast, Ancestry, The National Archives, the National Newspaper Libraries amongst others. Printers can be connected to the computers as required and there is a 25p charge for print-out sheets.
There are also sixteen micro-fiche readers and thousands and thousands of microfiche including the IGI for the whole world.
We have very invaluable links with Hampshire Record Office which enable us to do so much work outside of our meetings.
We have the minimum of rules, all members voting on specific occasions that need to be made from time to time. The day-to-day running of the Centre is undertaken by just four elected members and these are:
Our Chairman, Phil Hammond, our Vice-Chairman Brian Dorey, our Treasurer Ernie Oliver, and our Publicity Officer/Librarian is Sue Renault
Members work together researching and transcribing registers etc to produce our publications and we have summer and winter events to add a social side to all our research work.
Our postal address for all communications is:
