Furness Family History Society covers the areas of Furness (Furness is strictly that area of "Lancashire-beyond-the-Sands" which is bounded by the sea on the south, Cartmel and Windermere on the east, the River Duddon and Dunnerdale on the west and the Langdale valleys at the north. The origin of the name is believed to be "far ness"; accordingly, although most people say Furness (with the accent on the first syllable), probably the more-correct pronunciation is Furness. Furness is the area of prime concern for the Furness Family History Society.) Low Furness (Low Furness is the land of limestone and glacial deposit south of the line of higher hills between Ulverston and Ireleth, although rich sandstone is prominent at the coast in Barrow. The old parishes in this area are Dalton (with Walney, Rampside, Ireleth and Lindal), Aldingham (with Dendron), Urswick (with Bardsea) and Pennington; also contained is the southern end of the parish of Ulverston (including the chapel of Egton-cum-Newland). High Furness (High Furness [or "Furness Fells"] is that area of Furness north of the line of the edge of the hills between Ulverston and Ireleth, containing the northern part of the parish of Ulverston (with the chapels of Lowick, Osmotherley, Pennybridge and Torver) and the parishes of Kirkby Ireleth (with the chapels of Broughton-in-Furness, Woodland and Seathwaite), Colton [with the chapels of Finsthwaite and Rusland] and Hawkshead [with the chapels of Satterthwaite and Brathay]. Geographical areas are Grizedale Forest, Woodland Fell and the Coniston Fells.) Cartmel (The parish of Cartmel [largely a limestone district] is part of Lancashire-beyond-the-Sands [but not strictly part of Furness]. Cartmel parish has Morecambe Bay to the south, is bounded by the Lancashire border (the River Winster) on the east, extends northwards towards Bowness and faces Furness proper on the west across the River Leven. The chapels included in Cartmel parish are Allithwaite, Flookurgh, Grange-over-Sands, Lindale, Field Broughton, Staveley-in-Cartmel and Cartmel Fell. (The Cartmel area is serviced by the Kendal Record Office.) Cartmel has much in common with Furness proper, especially in its former county allegiance.) Lancashire "beyond the Sands" (The expression "Lancashire-beyond-the-Sands", although not an official term, is quite self-descriptive and comprises both Furness and Cartmel, this whole area being in Lancashire until 1974. The main significance of this area to us is that some classes of records are held in the Lancashire Record Office in Preston. (The term "Furness" is often used loosely to refer to the whole of "Lancashire-beyond-the-sands".) Copeland (Copeland is the southern part of Cumberland. The southern part of Copeland has much affinity with Furness and is served by Barrow Record Office. The Millom Registration District extends to Waberthwaite and up Dunnnerdale to the Wrynose Pass. This area of Copeland contains the parishes of Millom (with the chapels of Haverigg and Ulpha), Whicham, Whitbeck, Bootle, Corney and Waberthwaite)
Genes Reunited is a way to promote and discover your family on the Internet. It should be possible to find other people researching the same family as you and read helpful tips and advice added by other members. It’s built round the idea of publishing your family tree on the internet and making it available to other members, so you can “compare notes” or exchange information. You can either enter your tree manually as you go along, or by a GEDCOM file. It only takes a few minutes, and no technical skill at all is needed to upload a GEDCOM file to the system.
It can be free to use, although to get the most out of it and contact other like minded people, you need to subscribe. This can either be on a “pay as you go” format using credits, or by a subscription. The subscription currently has two levels. (1) Platinum, where you can build your family tree, search and view other trees and make contact with other members, as well as having access to census and birth, marriage and death records-some of which are free on other Websites anyway. (2) Standard, where you can build your family tree, search and view other trees and make contact with other members.
The cost is reasonable given the charges of some other genealogy sites make. Be sure to set you security to a level that you are happy with.
