Welcome to my website dealing with my One-Name Study into the Twyman surname.  Detailed herein will be details of varying lines of Twymans I've researched from all over the world - from the UK, to the United States, to Canada, to New Zealand, to Australia, and beyond.  Herein you'll also find indexes to original documents, and much much more.

Please find above, also, a link to this site's web-forum to allow all to discuss information pertinent to the Twyman families.  Please drop in and join and discuss anything from the Twymans, to family history in general, to all those random little things.



25-Oct-2014: A small update has been added to the parish register index for Thanet, adding baptism entries for the parish of St. Paul's in Cliftonville.

10-Sep-2014: Two new indices have been added to the site - both to cover transcriptions of newspapers articles.  The two indices cover articles from New Zealand & Canada.

8-Sep-2014: After a long wait, I've finally moved the parish registers for London over to their own searchable indices.  This replaces the pages that heretofore existed for these same transcriptions.

7-Sep-2014: A new index has been added to the site, to cover transcriptions of articles from a series of newspapers from Australia.  These articles come from various papers from all over Australia, with the majority being from New South Wales.

Also added are a number of birth, marriage & death notices from these various papers, which have been added to the relevant indices.



Coming Soon

- Further passenger lists, including passengers entering New York and leaving the UK for the US and Canada.

- An index of newspaper transcriptions for a number of UK national newspapers, including The Guardian, The Express, and The Scotsman.
