  1. John, I researched in Jersey in 2013 for the cousin of a chum whose father had accepted and moved to Jersey, mostly for his health, getting away from the smoky industrial north, arriving just before the Germans did in WWII.

    I could hardly believe how easy it was to go centuries back in half an hour. The fact is that unlike the rest of the UK, Jersey was not subject to heavy German bombing in any war and the Germans also did not care about the Jersey records at all. So they hardly ever touched them and certainly did not destroy them. And there were so few surnames on Jersey that it was very surprising to note that the surname I was researching was in the title of a Jersey department store, and twice even on the employees of the Jersey Archive. Cheers, BT
