Associate Membership of the Institute is open to all. The membership year runs from 1st October - 30th September. New members are required to pay an initial fee of 37.50 (if applying after 31st March this is reduced to 30) and thereafter 22.50 on the 1st October each year. Members receive a complimentary copy of The Institute's journal, Family History, as well as a 10% discount on purchases made through our bookshop.

All members have access to the library during normal opening hours at 2 per session or 3 per day. Space in the library is limited, and therefore all members are required to make an appointment with the librarian so that it can be ensured that there is sufficient room for everyone to work comfortably. Library hours are 10:00am to 4:30pm, Monday - Friday. More details can be found on the library pages.

On receipt of your payment you will be sent a membership card through the post.
