About our project ...

In this section, you can find out more

  • about the parish of Ravenstonedale 

  • about the background to our Geographical DNA Project

  • How to join the Ravenstonedale DNA Project



You will find a list of the most common surnames found in the parish in early records on the FAMILIES page, where you can see which surnames are already represented by project members.


The RESOURCES section is gradually growing - and will eventually include a wealth of information to help you research your Ravenstonedale ancestors.

I have been researching my own and my husband's family history for nearly twenty years, but became so interested in my grandmother's line that I set up a one-name study into the surname ADAMTHWAITE in around 2004 and registered the study with the Guild of One-name Studies in 2007.

... and a bit about me




I am a member of the Society of Genealogists, the Guild of One-name Studies and the Society for One-Place Studies.   In 2015 I completed the Certificate in Family History Skills and Strategies (Intermediate) Distance Learning Course with Pharos Tutors - which I thoroughly recommend to anyone wishing to further their knowledge in genealogy. In 2019 I completed their Advanced Certificate, which enhanced my knowledge and skills even further.
