Society membership is available to anyone with an interest in family history, but is particularly relevant to those who have ancestors who were born in, or who worked in Bradford, West Riding of Yorkshire.

The advantages of membership are:

  1. You can attend meetings and benefit from the talks (see Programme of events) and discuss your research problems with other members .
  2. You will receive a quarterly magazine, the Bod-Kin. In addition, the latest Bodkins are available online and can be viewed or downloaded via the site.

  3. You can submit your research interests and have them published in our Directory of Members' Interests. There is also a trial facility where members can update their interests online and these will be published in the directory as well as being visible on the site.

  4. The Directory of Members' Interests can be searched to identify other members with similar interests and a contact facility is available to make contact and discuss particular interests with those members.
  5. Useful articles from previous magazines are available to assist your research. You can view one of these articles by clicking here
  6. If you do not live in the Bradford area you can make use of our Link Scheme, whereby a local member will undertake to do limited research on your behalf on an expenses-only basis. Details of the Link Scheme will be sent to you with your New Member's Pack.
