Members' Interests

Many family history and similar societies list their members’ particulars and areas of interest in their magazines and newsletters. RDFHG used to do this, but discontinued the practice several years ago, in response to concerns over privacy issues.

However, it has been suggested that we should once again offer the opportunity for members to publish their expertise, experience and areas of interest, for the information and benefit of others, if they wish to do so.

With that in mind, members are invited to submit their contributions to this Members’ Interests Page, through the Secretary.  

When doing so, they should indicate whether they wish to be published under their own name, or by a pseudonym, or even just initials.

Any response can then in turn be communicated, again through the Secretary,

By using this method, we should be able to maintain a level of confidentiality acceptable to all.
