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
Mahy is the Ardennes form of Matthieu, so the surname is derived from a personal name from this north-eastern part of France.
Mahy is very much a Guernsey name, and all those found in Jersey are believed to originate in the sister island. We were sent a skeleton tree which we were able to expand with the help of church records and online trees, but the latter can be very misleading, including one of the main lineages which shows dates for parents of a child born a century earlier. We have done our best to extract data to create the tree below.
- Mahier, possibly a variant but we show it as a distinct family
