If you are interested in trying to answer any of these questions please let us know. We are always keen to find new members for our research team.


Perhaps you have your own question about Yateley which you would like to look into, and eventually add to this site.


If you have a question about Yateley which has been puzzling you, and would like someone else to research it, please contact the Webmaster on [http:www.hants.gov.uk/yateley|Yateley Society Main Website]


Please note that the Yateley Local History website is about just that -- Local History. The Yateley Society tries to answer family history questions directed to his main website. We work on a reciprocity basis -- we like to exchange our information with yours. In that way we gradually build up a better knowledge of Yateley's past. So if you find your ancestors mentioned in this website, please let us know
