The Harleian Society is a registered charity first established in 1869 and later incorporated in 1902. The official objects of the Society are “the transcribing, printing and publishing of the heraldic visitations of counties, parish registers or any manuscripts relating to genealogy, family history and heraldry“.

Until a couple of years ago back copies of their publications were available in PDF on a CD from the Archive CD Books Project.  Unfortunately, following the retirement of the Project’s founder, Rod Neep, the UK operation closed down.  However, copies are still available through the Project’s partners in Ireland, Australia, Canada and the USA.

With the advent of the Web Archive a number of the Harleian Society’s ” out of copyright” publications have been scanned and uploaded onto the Internet.  Listed below are all the Volumes produced by the Harleian Society up to 2008.  Those that are available online have a hyperlink attached to the Volume number.

One of  my favourites is

7     THE VISITATION OF THE COUNTY OF CUMBERLAND IN THE YEAR 1615         1872             Ed. by JOHN FETHERSTON, FSA
