Family history is one of the most important elements of Jerripedia and this section of the bibliography contains a list of titles published on Jersey genealogy, both in print and out of print. Chief among these titles is J Bertrand Payne's Armorial of Jersey. There are also books on immigrant groups, such as the Huguenots, to whom many islanders can trace their ancestry, and the useful publications on individual families.
