This web site is run by St Firmins Church, Thurlby.
If we have helped in you research and you would like to give a donation to help the work of our church we would be most grateful.
We are a small fenland church who love and support all those in our community, we provide a community focus which encourages fellowship and outreach, continuing family traditions as well as looking to the future.But we cannot do this without financial support to enable us to pilot new projects while continuing with existing ones.

Researching your family
As the family research blog is getting quite long, with requests for help, I have now added an index to the SURNAMES OF FAMILIES being researched by visitors to this page. You will find this under Family History Research.
It is good to see that through this page contacts are being made with fellow researchers. If you would like direct contact I am happy to pass on email addresses if both parties are agreeable – but please if you find anything interesting on village families please do post it to the blog or back to me.
If anyone is researching the Knipe family I have a researcher who would like to be in contact with you. please contact me via contact form.
