Useful research resources

If you are seeking to trace your family tree in Jersey you will find much valuable information on this site. There are many other good sources of information and the links here will take you to other websites, as well as providing information about sources in the island itself. Unfortunately the previous links to a number of useful resources are now broken, either because their web addresses have changed or the sites have closed. We have had to delete a number of links which do not work

Further sources

More information of interest to the family historian with ancestors in Jersey is likely to be found on third party sites than on official sites under the auspices of the States of Jersey.

Those not covered under other main headings in this section of Jerripedia and worth a look are:

  • Geneanet: French genealogy website with large number of Channel Island trees, particularly those with links to Normandy and Brittany families. This site has varying degrees of access, from free basic inquiries, to registration, to subscribers' detailed searches.
  • Ancestry: subscription site with detailed information on all Channel Island censuses from 1841-1901
