The latest issue of the Journal can always be viewed or downloaded from our Members Only area of this website. Members who have opted out of a paper copy will receive an e-mail each time a new issue is published notifying that the next issue is now available on line. The magazine may also be viewed on all devices, mobiles, tablets, etc., as well as desktop or laptop computers.


All members paying the full subscription rates receive a printed paper copy. However any member may opt for an on line copy at the basic membership subscription rate (see our membership joining and renewal page for the current fees)..


An archive of all back numbers from issue number 1 will be available to all members in our Members Only area of the web site in due course. Thanks to much hard work by our Librarian, Paul Stirland, the first hundred issues are  available in the archive which now replaces the CD that we previously marketed. All copies from Issue no 147 are also available in the archive.  We are gradually uploading those issued between June 2001 and December 2012, some of which are already available and the rest will be added as they become available.

In due course all back numbers will be available in the Members Only part of the site without further charge. Each time the next new edition is published we e-mail all members who have opted to use the electronic version only, advising that the latest edition has now been added to the site.

Back numbers of the magazine are no longer available on paper. Issues numbered 1-100 were produced on a CD but this is no longer available and has been replaced by the online archive.


Contributions from members for inclusion in the magazine are welcomed by the Editor.

Requests for help in research may be published in the magazine, space permitting, free of charge up to a maximum of forty words with a charge of 4p per word thereafter (in sterling please). Please send the text of the inquiry, not general lines of research to the Editor.
