Welcome to the SDFHS Online Shop where you can join the Society or renew an existing Subscription, buy Publications, book places for Events at our Family History Centre, or pay for Research by our experienced Vounteers.

You can also, if you wish, make a Donation to the Society on which, if you are a UK tax-payer and have signed a Gift Aid form, we will be able to reclaim income tax, making the donation worth an extra 25% to the Society at no additional cost to yourself.

Just add your purchases to your shopping basket and proceed to the check-out where you can pay securely either using your own PayPal account or with a credit/debit card.

After you click on ‘checkout’ you will be given two options:

  • Register Account
  • Guest Checkout

If you register with the shop then it will save your contact details (but not your card details) so that you will be able to shop more quickly in the future by logging-in as a ‘Returning Customer’. Please note that the shop is not linked to the Society’s membership database so if you want the shop to recognize you as a ‘Returning Customer’ you have first to register your details and choose a password.

When you get to ‘Payment Methods’ you are only offered ‘PayPal Express Checkout’ but this does not mean you have to have a PayPal account to use the shop. Click that you accept the terms and conditions, and then ‘Continue’ and you will be redirected into the PayPal part of the shop (the http in the URL will change to https) where you can chose whether to log in if you have a PayPal account or to pay as a ‘guest’ in which case you can pay using your credit/debit card. You then complete the relevant details for the method of purchase that you have selected.

We hope that you will find the Shop easy to use but if you experience any problems please contact us.
