Lancashire was a large county but as a county maintainer I don't have local knowledge
about everywhere in Lancashire. There are large parts of the county where I have no
personal genealogical interest as I haven't found any ancestors there in the brief moment
when I can do some research.
But there is a lot of basic simple knowledge that many researchers know, and which could
be easily added to the pages if you tell me. When this information is provided in the
GENUKI Lancs pages then we can refer newcomers to them without having to tell them these
basic facts individually.
If you would like to help add information to the Lancashire GENUKI pages then there are a
number of areas where specific help is required. Please take a look at these links and
see if you could help.
I am concentrating on adding specific information topics to the pages, and the list
below will develop as I work on each topic. So please look at each one and if you have
that piece of information, then please tell me.
- Have these churches ever had a graveyard?.
- Have these churches got a web page?.
- Do you know the exact location of these churches?.
- Have you got a picture of these churches?.
- Churches - I am building a database of all churches that have been in Lancashire
over the years
as part of the GENUKI church database
and for many of these more information is required.
Enter the name of the place in which the church is located and the list displayed will shows
icons identifying which items of information are currently required for each church:

- Societies - Family History Societies are year by year seeing a fall in membership as researchers use
just the web for information to help them with their research. But Family History Societies continue to be one
of the best sources for local information and in providing help with difficult research problems.
Advertising is important in making the FHSs more visible and so I am working to associate them with individual places in Lancashire
with links the the FHS websites. There is a detailed description of how this is being done with information for the FHSs on how they can
provide the required information.
The following links provide information to assist in Lancs page development, but
nothing useful to ordinary users.
