Yateley Society Local History Resources





The Yateley History Project's policy is to answer specific Yateley history questions from the public by application by email. We try to help researchers as much as we can. This is better for enquirers than allowing access to the passworded Yateley History Project website because we can draw on all our source material, and we know what we have got and what we haven't.


In return, we expect those who obtain our help to provide their Yateley relevant historical materials to us in return, and in the case of family historians to provide their genealogical link from their Yateley ancestors down to themselves.
