Hello world!

See adjacent text.

I am about to embark on an old journey but in a new format of blogging and posting. This I hope will enable me to find out more about my family history in the wonderful Jersey in the Channel Islands in which I was born.  I will endeavor to find out more about my heritage in the Channel Islands and beyond!

    1. Hi Beatrice,

      Thank you for visiting My Channel Island Ancestry and for sharing your family history with me and my readers. Your friend’s book sounds fascinating. If you could let me know when it is published that would be great as I would be keen to read a copy. I would be especially interested to read about the frequent relocations of the farmers as this sounds particularly interesting.
