Shop with Us

During the coronavirus pandemic our volunteer is unable to visit the Post Office to dispatch orders for books and CDs. We hope that you will understand and defer ordering physical items that would need to be posted for the time being.

Membership and research requests are still available, subject to the health and availability of our volunteers.

Please feel free to select ‘Sales’ on the Contact Us form to check the current position.

A wide range of items are available for purchase. See our Catalogue for the full range.

For an Index to the Hutchins – The History & Antiquities of the County of Dorset range of CDs, fully searchable by Place Name and including 200 Pedigrees, see the Index to identify which individual volume to purchase.

All items are available at our Treetops Research Centre and, by giving at least one week’s notice, can be taken to our Parkstone monthly meeting or the Family History Fairs and Open Days we attend around the country.

Online Shop

Here you can use a Credit / Debit card or your own PayPal account to join the Society or renew an existing Membership, buy Publications or pay for Research by our experienced Volunteers.

Add your purchases to your shopping basket. When you have finished, proceed to the Checkout and enter your contact details. Postage (where applicable) is calculated by the shop after your address has been entered. This part of the shop is secure (check for the green padlock and that the URL starts https) and payment details are not sent to the Society. If you do not have your own PayPal account, use the PayPal Guest Checkout to enter your Credit or Debit card details.

We aim to dispatch your order within 10 working days of receipt of the order and payment, but will email you if there is likely to be a delay. Membership applications and renewals may take longer during the renewals peak months of September & October.

We hope that you find this shop easy to use.  If a product is not available online, often because we only have a limited stock, we may be able to make alternative arrangements. For this, or if you experience any problems, please email ‘Sales’ from the Contact Us page.
