  • Descendants of Clement Le Feuvre - 2
  • Were your ancestors in business in St Helier in the 19th century? What sorts of businesses were they involved in? They probably advertised in one of the newspapers and almanacs published at the time. We have copied hundreds of these advertisements over the past few weeks and added them to the appropriate family pages, and also to the pages containing histories of the streets in which the businesses were situated. We have expanded many of the histories of shop premises in King Street, as well as adding new articles with histories of Queen Street and Broad Street, with information on who lived in the streets and had businesses there. These articles all contain links to many family trees, helping you to discover whether the people mentioned were your ancestors

  • We have today completed our periodic review of suggestions added to records in our database and updated records accordingly. Thank you to all who have left suggestions concerning corrections or additional information. Regrettably we cannot contact each of you individually but your contributions to the accuracy of our records are much appreciated. Some of our Jerripedia A-Z indexes of baptisms, marriages and burials are out of synch with the database, but a major update is planned for the indexes later in the year. Please always check information in the indexes against the database, because its records are always the first to be amended
