Buckinghamshire possesses an abundance of historical records of every kind. The aim of the Buckinghamshire Record Society is to make some of these records more readily available by publishing texts, calendars and indexes.
The Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies houses the County archives and local studies library with family and local history research facilities.
The Society's Annual General Meeting is held at a different venue around the county each year.
|This year the AGM will be held at 14.00 on Saturday 22 June 2013 at Green Park Centre, Aston Clinton. The AGM will be followed, at 14.40, by a talk by Catherine Taylor, archivist at the Waddesdon Archive, Windmill Hill on The Waddesdon Archive, family, farming and philanthropy. At 15.30 there will be tea, followed by a guided walk in the grounds of Green Park with Diana and Peter Gulland. Details|
Quarter Sessions Calendars and Other Publications
In 1931, the Standing Joint Committee of the Buckinghamshire Quarter Sessions and the County Council ordered the publication of calendars of the records of the Quarter Sessions. Eight volumes were published in all, covering the period 1678-1733. Digital copies of all of these volumes are available here.
In 1937 we began producing transcripts and calendars of other Buckinghamshire records, which were published as Record Society volumes. The older ones are available here as PDFs and the more recent ones are available for purchase.
Membership of Buckinghamshire Record Society runs from 1st January until the 31st December each year, and costs £15.00.
