Mailing List and Facebook

If your genealogy research hits the proverbial ‘Brick Wall’, the society offers two excellent facilities to help you get advice in order to solve your puzzle:-

NDFHS Members mailing list

The e-mail based NDFHS Mailing List is a FREE service restricted to NDFHS members who have subscribed to the service. List members are able to submit a Northumberland or Durham related query or topic for discussion by e-mail which is then redistributed automatically to all mailing list members who then have the choice of whether to read and reply, read only, or ignore the message having checked the subject line. Any replies are redistributed automatically to all mailing list members. All messages are stored on the individual members PC therefore it is the members responsibility to delete unwanted or out of date messages which are not searchable. For security reasons file attachments are not permitted.

To subscribe to (or unsubscribe from) the list, send an email to:

Include the word ‘subscribe’ or ‘unsubscribe’ in the subject line; and your membership number in the body of the email.
