Yorksgen Stories
The Home of Yorkshire Genealogy
Yorkshire Ancestors logo

Yorkshire is the Biggest County in England, therefore it has a wealth of Genealogical and Family and Local History resources, websites,
mailing lists and information online and in the county itself.

These pages aim to help you to access some of these resources
and to help you in your research.

We hope, also, to introduce you to Yorkshire traditions,
customs, humour, and an insight into living in Yorkshire, past and present.

Yorksgen is hosted by Rootsweb, one of the biggest Genealogical websites. It is THE best place to post information about your Yorkshire research. Yorksgen is a very special mailing list. It has some of the MOST friendly and helpful people on it that you will ever come across, however it can be a daunting place at times.

Our thirteenth Yorksgen conference will be

A Poem - Yorksgen 2004

A mailing list for anyone with a genealogical or historical interest
