We are Steve & Pauline Jones from Yorkshire, England. Welcome to our family history website.
We’ve been researching our family history for around 20 years. And there have been many surprises on the way - like finding a 17th century murderer and discovering war heroes (including a Victoria Cross holder). We’ve gained insights into tragedy through the many lives cut so short due to diseases or accidents that simply wouldn’t happen today. But we have also encountered the hope and courage that we like to think our ancestors carried with them as they gave up their lives in England to emigrate for new, and hopefully better, lives in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
Our aim is to share information about our ancestors and provide a resource for others with a research interest in the family names featured here. The site includes information from census returns, military service and, of course, birth, marriage and death records. We hope you’ll find something of interest. If you have a connection to any individual or family featured here, or if you want to leave us your feedback we’d love to hear from you - contact us.
We take great care to ensure that the information is fully researched and accurate. The site has over 700 pages of information on more than 5,700 individuals & 1600 families so errors or omissions may happen from time to time. For privacy reasons, we do not knowingly include any information about people who may still be alive. If we’ve got anything wrong, contact us.
