Editor: Mr. Allan Dawkins 

The Journal

The Section's Journal is The Yorkshire Family Historian, published three times yearly in Autumn, Winter and Spring and is issued free to members. It contains a range of articles of genealogical interest and social history in addition to news about forthcoming events, new members and membership matters in general. In each issue there is also a section focusing on new members' interests.

Members may have their requests for help published in the journal.


We are always seeking articles for the journal and the Editor welcomes articles for publication from members and non-members.


The Section is actively looking at circulating the Journal in electronic format to those members willing to co-operate in this modern method of distribution.  Additionally we are exploring the process of placing the Journals in a Members Only section of this website.
