New Web Site for York & District Family History Society

Welcome to our new web site which has been some months in the making. We’ve moved all the content that was on the old web site on to this new one and made sure any links to the site still work so you should still find what you are looking for.

York & District Family History Society Web Site

There are some new things, the most obvious is the new shop feature. We have installed a full shopping cart system which allows you to browse the products and add the ones you want to your “shopping cart” as you see them. Click on the image of each product to see more details. When you check out, the cart will automatically calculate the correct postage for the weight of items you have ordered wherever you are in the world.

There is also a Calendar feature so you can see at a glance what events we have planned for the year.

The site has been developed on WordPress using a professionally developed template. WordPress has a “back office” system which includes an easy to use editor so that a number of the society members can contribute to the site.

Please have a look around and if you have any questions or notice any errors, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us by using the contact form or emailing the webmaster (me).

  1. What has happened to the shop on our website . The CDs are all out of order. Please can you put it back to how it was as it was much easier to find everything when it was in categories like Burials, MI’s etc.


    • Thanks for letting me know, I didn’t realise the display had changed. Should be all back to normal now.
