It has come to our notice that publicity for The Family History Show Online says that Bedfordshire Family History Society will be exhibitors. To clarify, this only means that Genfair will be including our ‘stall’ of goods for sale in theirs. You can buy the same things directly through Genfair without buying a ticket for The Family History Show Online. You can also buy them through Parish Chest or directly from us (see “Society Information” – “Bookstall” – “Publications List”).
Temporary change of BFHS address during the Coronavirus crisis.
We cannot collect mail addressed to our PO Box because the Bedford collection point is closed. We understand that in the present circumstances Royal Mail has to treat the BFHS PO Box as a low priority. For the time being, any postal correspondence including orders by post should be addressed to:
If you have sent your membership form and payment or CD order to the PO Box you might like to send a new cheque and form to Noel Evans. We will take care not to present both cheques. Please also note that we are now able to post books and overseas orders again.

We continue to work on indexing the Funeral Directors Records for Bedfordshire. To date we have completed three ledgers of T & E Neville Ltd. They are January 1905 to December 1913. We are pleased that we have been able to add images of all the ledgers indexed so far. The originals may be viewed in the Bedfordshire Records Office. There references are X843/16/1, X843/16/2 and X843/16/3. You can also view the 19 other ledgers which go up to 1955.
