Welcome to the Milford-on-Sea Historical Record Society's website
MOSHRS is one of the oldest local history societies in the country.
Interested in hearing about local history or finding out for yourself or meeting others with similar interests? There’s a lot of value in being a member of MOSHRS. Find out more.
We have an active membership with a programme of talks and an annual outing. We have recently had two very active projects Bringing History Home and Cornwallis Remembered. Some important new initiatives are planned for 2022 and 2023 and these will be launched at our AGM on 27th January 2022. For those particularly interested in researching our local history we are starting up again our Research Group.
Contributing to our records
We have been collecting historical records ever since the Society was founded in 1909.
Today we have over 9,500 and we are making them more accessible through our on-line archive catalogue.
If you have some documents, images or artefacts which tell some of Milford’s history and would like to add them to the archive then please get involved.
Supporting the website
The website is created and maintained by a group of volunteers.
We welcome newcomers, so if you’re interested please contact us. Of course, you are welcome to add a comment about anything on the website by clicking on the ‘Add a comment’ link at the bottom of each page.
