Jerripedia, launched in February 2010 within days of Donkipedia, is the one-stop-shop for anyone researching their ancestors in Jersey. It also provides a comprehensive picture of the island from pre-historic days to the German Occupation of the mid-20th century and right up to today.
With an unrivalled collection of historic photographs and works of art, Jerripedia shows exactly what Jersey looked like over the centuries, and particularly during the last 150 years.
It contains over 275 pages dedicated to island families, over 1,000 family trees, and over 300,000 baptism and other family records.
The continuing success of Jerripedia has been recognised by the prestigious British genealogy magazine, Your Family History.
They have awarded Jerripedia founder and editor, Mike Bisson,
their inaugural Volunteer of the Year award for 2013.
Jerripedia now contains an index of records of Jersey baptisms, marriages and burials in the 12 parish churches from the earliest registers in the 16th century to the 19th century, in addition to the 30,000-plus St Helier baptisms from 1842 to 1909.
This is the first time that Jersey church records have been available online and it represents a major step forward for Jerripedia, which is committed to adding to this service in the future and continuing to provide the best reference source for family historians researching their ancestry in the island.
Alongside this work we are linked to a fully searchable database of all records so that searches for names can be made across all parishes, as well as in individual parishes, and across baptism, marriage and burial records at the same time.
You will find links to all the records and background information on our Family records page.
