You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.
The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for www.jerripediabmd.net. For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.

Origins of surname
Juhel is a Breton name, originally a baptismal name, derived from iud, meaning 'seigneur' and hael meaning 'generous' or 'noble'. There was a 6th century king in Brittany called Iudhael.
There has only been one Juhel family in Jersey. It started with Amand Juhel, born in 1845, apparently the illegitimate son of Angelique Juhel (1811- ). Amand married Mary Mauger and their son Francis Amand Juhel was one of the first electricians in Jersey.
He emigrated to Canada with his second wife and children. Four Juhels fought in the Great War. We have not been able to establish how Francis and Peter fit into the tree below.
