Arthur Kennedy's Family History


This is a list of places where I've found records of my ancestors and their families. Names in bold indicate my direct ancestors, most of whom can be found elsewhere on this site, but other more distant family members are included in case it helps others make a connection, and I can provide further information on request.

Many surnames have alternative spellings, but to keep the list more manageable I've listed only the commonest variant for each place. The dates reflect the records that I know of, so there may well be family connections to some places over a longer period than is shown here.
