Forest of Dean Family History Pages


clip_image002Oh….I want some ancestors from the Forest of Dean so that I can use this wonderful web site!!! 

90% of the parish registers and non conformist registers have been transcribed and are online, plus they have transcripts of parishes bordering on the Forest of Dean. There are photos, emigration lists, maps, articles and much, much more.

Congratulations to David Watkins on a magnificent site.

Changes to the website


Hi everyone

I am trialling a different approach to posting onto the Madaboutgenealogy website. I will post news, articles and updates on the front page (blog) part of the site, but no longer publish each individual addition. Hopefully this will mean that more content gets added to the website more quickly. I’ll see how it goes.


So for today the update is that I have added lots of content to the Bedfordshire page, lots of links for all sorts of genealogical subjects.

England’s Past for Everyone



This website has sections on Bristol, Cornwall, Derbyshire, County Durham, Exmoor, Herefordshire, Kent, Oxfordshire, Sussex and Wiltshire. It is run by the Victoria County History people and the aim is to work with local communities to produce books and web pages about their areas. Lots of goodies here if your ancestors came from one of the places covered.
