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.

Origin of Surname
Voisin is French for neighbour.
The family is well established in Jersey and best known for Voisin's department store. The proprietors of this family business, founded in 1837, and all the other Voisins in the island, are believed to descend from Louis Voisin, who emigrated to the island as a religious refugee with his son and grandson around 1690 (see tree below).
