Quarterly & Back Journals

Since 1978 the Society has published a quarterly journal 'North West Kent Family History' (SSN 0263-6506), which is mailed to all members. It generally contains some 40 to 50 pages of articles on family history in north west Kent and elsewhere, news items, and surnames being researched by new members. It has won the Elizabeth Simpson award for the best family history society journal on a number of occasions.

The first two volumes (1978-82) were published at a size of 10" x 8", but this was altered to A5 format in 1983. At the same time the number of issues per volume was increased from eight (covering two years) to twelve (three years).

Join the Society and contribute to the Journal

Journal Editor Pauline Heathcote is always looking for new material for publication from members - articles, letters, snippets & photos.

Write an article about your research including your questions. If you include your email address, members can reply to you. Each issue of The Journal is available on line for the foreseeable future which has, in the past, led to members contacting authors several years later.
