What's New?

Jump to: navigation, search

This page lists all new pages added to the site since 1 January 2020, and from time to time also contains important messages about changes to site pages. The volume of new material added to the site has not been as great as in recent years, mainly because much of the editorial team's time has been devoted to checking, correcting and updating existing content, particularly the Family pages. Restrictions imposed because of the Covid pandemic have also limited access to sources of new material in Jersey and, even though some of these restrictions have been lifted, our editors are still being encouraged to limit their visits to those libraries and other sources of infomation which are now open.

Apologies to anybody who may have our What was new page bookmarked, but we have decided to delete it because changes over the past ten years have resulted in a significant number of broken links to pages now deleted, and the page also linked to old baptism and other family record listings which have not been deleted but are no longer an active part of the site.

We have started a further review of our family pages, adding burial records to those not yet including them, rechecking linked family trees, updating links to our database of church records, and generally tidying the pages and checking their content. This work has been completed for all family names beginning with A and we are continuing to work our way down the alphabet. Clearly this review will take months to complete and we will not be listing individual families as they are completed, but will include progress reports on this page as time permits.

  • Bertaut: Our review of family pages and associated trees continues to make progess. A set of seven new trees for the Bertaut family has been added, effectively replacing the trees which have been on the site since 2013

  • Family pages: Our review of family pages, which has been under way for many weeks, is now complete. All of the 1,236 pages now have direct links to searches in our database for baptisms/births, marriages and burials. In addition there is a link to lists of undertakers' burial records for the majority of families. During this review we have also revised, corrected and extended many of our family trees, now numbering 3,329. Further information will, of course, be added to family pages as it becomes available. We also have a list of family trees, which require attention and were not tackled in this latest review. That work will continue as time permits.
