New Applications

We look forward to welcoming you as a Member of Dorset Family History Society.

Please read the Gift Aid statement (below) and decide whether Dorset FHS can claim Gift Aid on this and future subscriptions.

To pay by PayPal or a Debit or Credit Card 

Visit our shop and select the appropriate product. If you do not have your own PayPal account, use the PayPal Guest Checkout to enter your Debit or Credit card details.

To pay by cheque or cash (sterling only please).

Print off an Application form, complete and send it with your cheque to the address on the form.

Or take the form with your cheque or cash to our Research Centre, during opening hours, or to any of our meetings. Do Not send cash by post.

Please remember that the Society is staffed entirely by volunteers, so don’t expect an immediate response. At busy times, particularly around the start of the membership year in October, it can take up to 3 weeks before your Membership number and Welcome pack are sent to you.

Please ensure Dorset FHS are kept advised of any contact detail changes (including any E-Mail).

May we encourage all members who pay Income or Capital Gains Tax in the UK to complete the Gift Aid declaration?  HM Revenue & Customs enables Charities, like us, to register subscriptions as a donation for Gift Aid purposes.  By this means we can claim back the tax paid by UK members on their subscription, making it worth an extra 25p for every £1 paid to the Society, at no extra cost to you or us. Thank you..

If you pay less Income Tax and / or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

Please notify us if you:

  1. Want to cancel the declaration
  2. Change your name or home address
  3. No longer pay sufficient tax on your income and / or capital gains.
