Members' Websites

The following Websites have been sent to us for inclusion on this page. They are Websites created mainly by members of the IW Family History Society of families that have been researched by them. Many of them also have a considerable amount of information about the Isle of Wight. The information on any of these sites cannot be guaranteed by the Society and anyone using them is urged to use them as a guide to research only. If you know of any other sites that would be useful for Isle of Wight research please feel free to send them to the Webmaster: E-mail contact : Click for email address

Please note that these are placed in alphabetical order by surname and new sites are often added


Robin Lewin, Member No 1813

I recently took on the task for the ATTRILL 'one name studies'. To give members access to all the information I have gathered I decided to start a specific website dedicated to the Attrill name. This site contains a vast amount of information for those researching the Attrill name, as well as many other Island families who married into the Attrill family.
