Notes for New Members
On joining the Society, you will receive a welcome pack, containing various leaflets eg Forthcoming Events (being held by the Society), Publications List and a Members’ Surname Interest form.
The names you are researching will be published in the next issue of The Doncaster Ancestor, the Journal of the Society which is published quarterly, and will also be kept on the members’ interests database. These entries in the Journal frequently result in contacts being made with people who have similar interests.(Your name and address will also be included in the journal and database unless you state otherwise). In addition to circulating The Doncaster Ancestor to each of our members, we also exchange journals with most other Family History Societies. These are available for loan at the monthly meetings. All correspondence needing a reply must be accompanied by a Stamped Addressed Envelope (with U.K. stamps) or two I.R.C.s obtainable at Post Offices.
