Our quarterly journal has been published continuously since the Society was formed in 1975. A complete set is available for reference in our Research Room in Bristol.
Each issue aims to keep members up-to-date about events that may be taking place and presents regular features and a range of articles about family history and local history. 'On the Internet' articles (see below) are reproduced on this website in the month of publication and 'My Parish' articles are published 12-18 months after publication in the Journal.
Journals are distributed to members each quarter (June, September, December & March) and members who join part way
through the membership year (which begins in April)
are sent copies of past Journals for that year.
