This page promised more family records in 2016 and since they became available early in 2017 we have been somewhat preoccupied with processing them for inclusion in our parish indexes.
Lists of baptisms are also being added to all our Family pages and this work will continue well into the year.
Alongside this we will be checking countless notes we have made over the years suggesting that some records were missing from our associated Jerripediabmd database and looking up the original church records to try to find missing and inaccurate records.
We continue to receive and are still interested in receiving new trees - email your family tree to firstname.lastname@example.org - please use Jerripedia as the subject of your email - for addition to the site. Priority is given to trees received in this way.
We are continuing with the painstaking, lengthy and slow process of creating links backwards and forwards between trees where a spouse in one tree can be identified in their own family's tree. Family pages are being upgraded, new trees researched and links created to biographies of family members and profiles of family homes.
The 1,000-plus pages devoted to Jersey's most important families are increasingly becoming the core of the site. They contain information on the earliest records in Jersey of these families, the derivation of the surnames, lists of baptisms, links to family trees and family histories, and now links to articles about the houses the families have owned and the businesses they have owned or worked in. We are also in the process of adding an index of wills from the 17th century to World War 2 held by Jersey Archive to each family page.
We will soon be adding more articles on family homes, and also information about family members who lost their lives in military service in World War 1. We continue to receive old family photographs which help to bring our family pages to life, and are always happy to be sent more of these.
More family histories researched in Jersey have been added to the site in 2016, and still more are in the pipeline. Please remember that histories, however long or short, of individuals or whole Jersey families, are always welcome. Please email email@example.com if you have family histories which you can share with other Jerripedia users.
We also continue to add almost daily to our collection of over 44,000 historic photographs and other images of Jersey.
Content is being added to Jerripedia daily, so all we can say is:"Keep visiting What's New? to discover our progress in adding to the site's content".
Just a reminder that you can add your own content to Jerripedia, or send it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, for inclusion in the site. We don't want the availability of mountains of new material to stop the flow from Jerripedia fans, who are still visiting our pages in their hundreds every day. New subscribers only need to answer a simple question to gain full access to the site and be able to edit or contribute new content.
