What people say about us



I’m always telling everyone that BerksFHS knocks other Societies into a cocked hat.   The website is SUPERB and second to none - we are very fortunate to have so many skilled people.   Thank you.




I recently loaded my data to YourTrees and have found it very useful in showing up mistakes/anomalies in my original. It offers reporting on some fields which are hard to get to on my desktop program. I thought I would let you know that it has already helped

US customer

My Berkshire Burials CD arrived in the US within a week to my surprise. Already it has been a big help to me; particularly in finding date of decease, and confirming locations and relationships. It is a great piece of work. Thank you. I thought you would like to know how much help you have been to an American cousin!

Thanks to all those who've produced the most up-to-date, advanced, capable and easy-to-use website I'm aware of and that includes big names, and I do access many different sites!



Thank you to all involved for such an interesting talk today. It seems a real privilege we can access such talks at this time  - and again thank you to the technology that allows it and to you and all your team for enabling the talks to take place.



Just to say thank you so much for all you have put online for members this past 18 months, it's been great! Thanks also for the access to subscription sites which I have made use of and found useful.

I'm a manager of Design & Marketing so websites are part of my job.  I absolutely love the new site. Simple. Clean. Professional. Easy to navigate and use. Well done!!!
