The Genuki service is provided by a group of individuals who wish to freely provide genealogical information. As such
different people maintain different sections of the website(e.g. counties). In order to manage this group of people we
have established a charitable trust
with a group of trustees
We have concentrated in GENUKI on getting information
about primary sources into what is in effect a virtual reference library,
rather than on acting as a clearing house for research.
If you would like to join us and help in the provision of the Genuki service then please take a look in more detail about
how we do this.
We very much appreciate the generousity of our sponsors
who have provided funding to help us provide the Genuki web site.
If you want to ask questions about UK Genealogy, then the most appropriate
places to do that are in the many e-mail lists
that other organisations have set up.
Please do NOT send us general genealogical queries as it is very
unlikely that we have the expertise (or time) to answer them. It may seem
impolite but do not expect any reply to such queries. We are not professional
researchers and in fact seem to have little enough time to do our own research
let alone do any for anybody else as maintaining and expanding the genuki
service takes a considerable part of our spare time. If the information that
you want is not on the WWW pages, then we do not have it.
However if you do find any errors, or want to offer suggestions, or want to help
with genuki, or have comments about a specific county or area then
contact the maintainer of that area by using the contact links on the pages in that section of the site. In that way your
comment will be directed to the appropriate maintainer.
The county developers are grouped by country:
