At the Root Cellar, manned by Society volunteers, all the Society’s published transcriptions may be consulted and / or purchased. There is also a collection of genealogical fiche, film and booklet resources available for reference. Full details of the Society’s publications are in the online store. The store also has a number of books of interest to Family and Local History Researchers. To help offset the Root Cellar running costs members are asked to contribute £1.50 and non-members £3.00 for each session of using Root Cellar facilities.

A suite of computers is available for family history research and the Society provides access to Ancestry (library edition), Find My Past,  as well as a number of additional Society resources. Friendly volunteers are on hand if you need help with your research. There is also an extensive library covering genealogy and local history, most of which are available for loan.
