Also available is joint membership at £20.00 and professional membership at £30.00.

For further information on the Society, see the Society's page on Genuki. For information on professional searches see the Devon Record Office.
This listing of the Society's collections is based on the work undertaken by Stephen Stride during 1986 and has been updated to take account of recent accessions. Items included in earlier lists, but omitted here, were not found in the shelf check conducted during the original revision of this list in 1986. The list is divided into sections which normally reflect the arrangement of the material on the shelves as follows:
A: Society publications, old series.
B: Society publications, new series.
C: Society publications, extra series.
F: Family information files (in reserve).
G: Parish information files (in reserve).
P: Inhabitant lists covering more than one parish. By year.
Q: Family histories. By name.
R: Miscellaneous records. Alphabetically by type.
S: Periodicals. By title.
W: Nonconformist registers on microfilm (in reserve).
X: Devon parish records.
Y: Marriage indexes for Devon and Cornwall.
Z: Cornwall parish records.
