Yorkshire Surname List Submissions Kindly read the instructions carefully and
right through to the end, BEFORE using the form.
YKS Surnames List is a free, voluntary service for everyone who is researching
their family trees
in Yorkshire, and Yorkshire only. These ARE NOT MY names, so please do not
ask me to do lookups or to post queries. Either contact other researchers directly, submit
your own name(s) to this list and/or post your query on one of the genealogy
lists for Yorkshire. You can find directions for these at
Your submissions are formatted and put on the
list by me - they do not automatically appear on the list after you have
submitted them. New submissions and amendments to current
entries will appear with the next update of the pages, usually within ten days.
Whenever possible, use the form supplied below to submit your surname(s).
The forms are checked by software, so follow the instructions carefully.
If you don't, your submission may be ignored by the software.

There is no form for changing information. I will happy to

and please don't forget to include the following details:
Your name and email AS IT APPEARS on your original submission
Your NEW name or email address if this is what you are changing
Any dates, locations and other details you would like me
to add or remove.
EXTREMELY IMPORTANT as it is UP TO YOU to inform me of
all changes in your email address.
If your email address bounces, all your
submission(s) will be summarily deleted from the list.
Sadly, not everyone remembers to tell me when they change email addresses.
If you attempt to contact another researcher and the email bounces,
Please don't forget to send me the researcher's name as well as the bouncing
email address. You may also wish to post a
notice to one of the Yorkshire genealogy lists in the hope that he/she will
read it and contact you directly. You can find directions for Yorkshire
