The members area gives access to a range of transcriptions from records including censuses, monumental inscriptions, wills and much more. Members also receive a copy of the society’s quarterly journal ‘Coontin Kin’, and you will be able to contact our research secretary and Shetland-based members for help researching your family. If you visit Shetland, a warm welcome awaits at our offices where you can browse our growing collection of records and books.
We urge UK applications to consider the electronic membership to keep down our costs and save paper. New overseas membership is only available electronically.
