To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the RTFHS (1994-2019), we are starting to make available on this site a number of books published by the Society that have been out of print for several years. These are free for you to read online or print out for yourself.

The first book in this free series is our An RTFHS South Country Family Album: a fine collection of old photographs kindly contributed by RTFHS members, showing members of their own families. These are mainly people who lived in or travelled in the southern counties of England, stretching from Kent to Cornwall, in the past 100 years or so.

A name index is provided as a separate document. Including maiden names, the people featured in the book belong to the following families: Anderson, Ayres, Bailey, Ball, Barney, Black, Bowers, Brown, Butcher, Camfield, Cole, Collins, Cooper, Couch, Cranfield, Crutcher, Doe, Giles, Gobey, Greenstreet, Griggs, Hawkins, Holmes, Hope, Hughes, James, Keet, Martin, Matthews, Mitchell, Norris, Orchard, Othen, Penfold, Pidgley, Rawlings, Renals, Roberts, Sanders, Saunders, Silmon, Small, Smith, Stanley, Swallow, Taylor, Walker, Walton, White and Woods.

The book and its name index can be found here.
