Members Questionnaire 2024

Thank you for being a member of Doncaster & District Family History Society and we hope that you are enjoying the benefits this provides. 

Some of you may have been researching your family history for many years while others may be quite new to this absorbing, very rewarding and at times a challenging hobby.

We have produced this questionnaire to ask for your help. 

Like many family history societies, we have seen a decline in our membership in recent years.

We would like to understand why it is that people join our society, and your feedback will help us to see how we can improve the society for you. 

We would be grateful if you could spend a few minutes to complete this questionnaire.

Anything you say within this questionnaire is strictly confidential and is only shared with relevant members of the committee.

You can complete the questionairre anonimously if you wish.

The questions marked * require a response.

Thank you.
