This association will be of interest to many visitors to this web site because it is the publisher of :

Herts Past & Present


Published by the Hertfordshire Association for Local History with assistance from HALS.  

This is a regular publication appearing, twice a year, which contains well written articles relating to the history of Hertfordshire and the people who lived here. Articles often contain extensive lists of references and these can often suggest sources for researching your own ancestors. Members of the Hertfordshire Association for Local History receive a copy of each issue of Herts Past & Present on publication.

In addition to the main articles there is an editorial, a basic guide on some source of relevance to those researching Hertfordshire History, and book reviews. The latest issues have a section giving details of future events, major developments at HALS, and news of Hertfordshire museums.
