Jerripedia[edit | edit source]

"Jerripedia's trees come from a wide variety of sources. The earliest added to the site in 2010 resulted from the research by members of the original editorial team into their own ancestry. Trees from Payne's Armorial of Jersey were added next, and since then there has been a steady flow of trees submitted by Jerripedia users, or assembled by us from parish records. Wherever possible trees have been cross-checked with other sources, including (since 2012) our database of church records of baptisms, marriages and burials. We also cross-reference submitted trees with online sources, but never rely exclusively on online trees, unless they have been compiled by a small number of researchers into Channel Island families, in whose work we have total confidence. We have researched a substantial number of trees from the family history section of Jersey Archive and the library of La Société Jersiaise. Many of these have been deposited by individual researchers, whereas others are the results of work by members of the research teams of the Channel Island Family History Society and La Société. These trees are treated in the same way as submitted trees and are checked with other sources wherever possible."
