That's over 100 family descendancies, long and short, added to the site since Christmas Eve, and that exhausts the supply of trees provided by Jerripedia users. There are now nearly 650 family trees on the site, but room for plenty more. If you have family trees you can share with others attempting to trace their ancestors in Jersey, please send them to us (editcontact@theislandwiki.org) so that they can be added to the site for easy access by people all around the world.

Family page updates

Jerripedia editors have embarked on the lengthy process of creating links between the 600-plus trees currently on the site. Where the spouse of a member of one tree can be identified in their own family's tree, a link is created in each direction. Some of these links have already been made over the past two years, but now each tree is being analysed in turn to identify which further links can be established.

At the same time each family page is being updated, making sure that there are links to all baptism listings for the family and any articles about individual members of the family or the Jersey houses they owned at some time in the past. Further family trees are being added and existing trees updated as new information becomes available.

This is a very time-consuming process, and is likely to take many months to complete. As each family page and its set of trees is completed this will be recorded on this page to enable researchers to keep up to date with progress.

  • Family records: A major update of the church records has been completed. With the exception of St John, there are now single A-Z indexes for baptisms, marriages and burials in each parish, and they all follow the same, logical, alphabetical order. While we don't claim that the indexes are now error free, a major proof-reading exercise in the database and subsequent reload to the indexes has trapped the majority of remaining errors and allowed everything to be updated and synchronised. We regret that a small number of records for which transcriptions exist are still missing and attempts continue to obtain them and upload them to the site. Page images of transcriptions are progressively being added to baptisms in the database allowing godparents and other information not included in the indexes to be seen.

23-27 October

Over the past two months we have added over 200 new family trees to the site. They have all been linked to the relevant family pages, over 160 of them new, and we have now updated the Index of all family trees and the individual A-Z indexes. This important project is not complete. We have at least another 100 family trees in the process of being researched and about 60 family pages identified for further content. We have also been steadily adding more images of gravestones in Jersey to our family pages, so there is masses of new information for family historians to digest. Look for your family names - there is probably something new to interest you since you last visited Jerripedia.
