Ravenstonedale DNA Project


This site has been accepted for inclusion in the British Library project to ensure it lives on long after I can no longer maintain it!

Discover if this Project can help YOUR family history research ... or perhaps you could share your knowledge about your Ravenstonedale ancestors to help others

  • Are any of the following surnames in YOUR family tree?

  • Did those ancestors come from Ravenstonedale?  


If your answer to both these questions is 'YES', then take a look around our website and find out how YOU can be part of this project.  And if you are also interested in genetic genealogy, then you may also wish to participate in our Ravenstonedale DNA Project!  If you would like to receive our (very) occasional Newsletters, please complete the Contact Form.
