The Social and Family Connection of Normandy
From time to time we receive requests from researchers of family history for information about past family connections with Normandy. To help us in that quest we are given information of the respective ancestors and although this on its own has little satisfaction, collectively it could be beneficial to other family history researchers. We are, therefore, collating this dictionary of family names together with some family trees. The format will be similar to that shown below and each entry is subject to being made only with the full knowledge and co-operation of the informant. However, Normandy Historians accept no responsibility for the correctness of any entry.

If you have any more information on any of the e-mails or family trees please contact us by clicking the reference number or e-mail (with the reference number please) and I will hand your comments on to the sender. Also, please let me know if the relevant information may be added.
