Family trees

The Society has over 1200 family trees that have been donated by Members and are available in the library at Percy House. We are now able to supply digital scans of these to members.

Monumental Inscriptions

The Society has a large collection of Monumental Inscriptions transcripts. These are kept in the library at Percy House and copies of the majority of them can be purchased through our on-line shop. A full list of our holdings is available on-line and can be downloaded here. The list includes (in grey) holdings at the local record offices.

MI holdings

The Society has an ongoing project to digitise all of the above transcripts. These are then made available on the databases at Percy House, and later copied to FindMyPast. Copies can be bought on-line but only through FindMyPast. A summary of the work completed is available on-line and can be downloaded here:

Monumental Inscriptions project images

The Society is taking part in a national project to record every gravestone in the United Kingdom and local volunteers are photographing graveyards and cemeteries in Northumberland and Durham. These images and transcriptions are available on our computers at Percy House. The transcriptions are not yet available online but we are able to provide copies of the images. A list of the names included in the images is available on-line and can be downloaded here:

Copies may be purchased through our on-line shop.


Unwanted Certificates donated to the Society

Birth, Marriage, and Death Certificates have been donated to the NDFHS by members because the certificates proved to be unrelated to their research. These certificates are housed in the library at Percy House and are available to visitors to the library. The Unwanted Certificate Co-ordinator will be delighted to receive any similar “mistakes” which members might like to donate. She can be contacted at Percy House.

We are now able to provide scanned images of the certificates we have. Copies may be purchased through our on-line shop.
