(For trip planning information to Jersey and England, please visit our Jersey Travels page.)

  • Cyndi's List of Channel Island web sites, a comprehensive list of links.
  • Société Jersiaise (American translation: Society of Jersey). The members of the Société welcomed the PDA tour group very warmly in June 1998 with a dinner party on Saturday evening and as honored quests at their monthly meeting Monday evening. The Société has an extensive research library which includes an original manuscript of John Poingdestre, uncle to our immigrant.
  • Alex Glendinning's page on family research on Jersey. Alex has adopted the Poingdestre family as his subject of research. He has spent many months reviewing past reserach, archived documents and interviewing many people, including Poingdestre's living on Jersey today. During the PDA's tour of Jersey, June 1998, he was inducted as an honorary member of the PDA family. This is a must-visit web site for those who are researching their Channel Islands roots. Alex is the Vice-Chairman of the Channel Islands Family History Society (CIFHS) and his Home Page contains a wealth of information on the Society including general information, the index of contents for recent Journals, and a list of upcoming events. He has also included Research in the Channel Islands FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) and descriptions of his very informative books on the Islands. He has a second website at the Société, click here to visit.
  • Jersey Datestones Project: marriages were once recorded in stone on Jersey. Learn more about this old tradition and the Project to record them.
  • Channel Islands Queries: Geoff Wright's web site, including how to join the Channel Islands email list, The Jersey Phonebook for 1900 and Some links to other Channel Islands sites.
  • John Fuller's web site that deals solely with the Channel Islands and attempts to focus on Channel Islands genealogy. He enjoys helping those who are seeking their Channel Islands roots and hope that something on these pages will be of assistance to you. He has a long surnames list.
  • Geraint Jennings web site: including tutorials in the original Jersey lanquage, Jérriaise, details on the Jersey crest and flag, and a link to his other home page chock full of interesting Jersey info.
  • Jersey Names from the Past, lists of names found in the history of the island of Jersey. (NEW February 2003)
