Membership

The annual subscription to join the Bliss FHS is currently 7 for Uk members or 10 for overseas members (the extra charge is to cover the extra airmail cost for sending the magazine overseas).

Members in the United States may pay their subscription of $20 to our N. American Secretary. Please write your cheques to Grace Elizabeth Bliss Smith, Ph.D. and advise of an email address if you have one.

Members in the Australia/NZ may pay their subscription of $20 to our Australian Secretary. Please write your cheques to Bradley Bliss, PO Box 2290, Orange, NSW 2800 and advise of an email address if you have one.

The Society issues two editions of the BLISS Magazine to all members each year in June and December. We believe BLISS is one of the best FH publications. Production standards are high, allowing the wide range of articles to be read with pleasure and comfort.

All members are welcomed to the Annual Reunion of the Bliss FHS. This has always been held in England but we might spread our wings in the future!
This year's reunion

Members are invited to make use of the Bliss Genealogical Data Base (BGDB) and other genealogical material in the Society by consulting with The Records Secretary and Editor. The BGDB includes all Blisses found in the complete Census Series of Blisses in England and Wales 1841 to 1911. We also hold thousands of extracts of Bliss family events from parish registers in many English counties, entries from Trade and Post Office Directories and many other sources- 50,000 Bliss records and growing each month. In addition to the BGDB we hold a complete index to Bliss birth registrations in England and Wales 1837-2005 marriage registrations 1837-2005 and deaths 1837-2005.

We also possess the three volume Genealogy of the Bliss Family in America, which the chairman or N. American secretary will consult for lookups requested by members.
