What is Gift Aid


 Gift Aid allows individuals who are subject to UK income tax to complete a simple, short declaration to that effect.  Doing so when you pay your subscription allows the Society to recover an amount equivalent to the basic rate of income tax (currently 20%) from HMRC, an additional £2.86 for each subscription received under the scheme, costs you nothing and is worthwhile additional income to the Society.

Where to Start

 This leaflet produced by the NFHS, maps a path that can be taken to help build your family tree and will show you some of the information and where it can be found. It is not a definitive route as there are many sources available to researchers and not all can be shown, but it will set you well on your road. Note that many of the sources cover a wide timespan.

Click on the Image to download and then print the leaflet. The best results will be obtained by printing the leaflet from the PDF, double sided and 2 pages to a sheet (Using your printers instructions), otherwise print as two pages.
