The UK Surnames Web site is a Facility for exchanging family
history data. The site currently has in excess of 33000 names
listed from nearly 6000 contributors and is growing daily.
Advantages of this Surnames Listing site over other Surname
1. All updates are live - no waiting for the site administrator
to get round to updating it.
2. Contributors are able to completely manage their own entries.
3. The Whole of the UK on one site - no need to manage entries on
multiple lists, it is all in one place and easily grouped by
county and region.
4. All email addresses are hidden. Spammers find it extremely
difficult to "farm" email addresses from this site. Your email
address is secure, and will not be given or sold to any other
5. Search for exact match over entire country, or partial match
for individual counties.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Please note that part of the site facilities are only available
to subscribers, however ALL The County Surname Lists are
available and fully functional FREE OF Charge. The additional
features available to subscribers are enhanced search and ease of
use facilities, and the primary purpose is to help finance the
site whilst still offering the full functionality of the site to
remain free for all - This is the case now and will always
remain so - IT IS NOT MY INTENTION TO EVER REMOVE THE FREE
DATABASES either for contributors, or browsers.
