Newsletter for the interchange of genealogical data and history of the Judkins (and variant spellings) families who came mainly from England, Scotland, and Wales. Some focus in on (but not limited to) descendants of Robert Judkyn (died ca. 1531) of Brixworth, England, and of Job Judkins of Boston, Massachusetts, and of Samuel Judkins of Surry County, Virginia. Some Judkins progenitors settled in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Vermont, and Virginia in the 1600's-1700's. During the 1800's, some moved to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia (Canada), Brazil, New Zealand, and to Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. Later descendants also lived in Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan (Canada), England, Wales, and in Alaska, Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Maryland, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Washington D.C., West Virginia, and elsewhere. Some have African American bloodlines.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.


Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
