Pitcairn Family Search Page
It would be impracticable to expect anyone to enter a site such as this
hoping that they would be able to find the information they require by
simply checking all the families and pages. To help with locating
individuals or places, we have included this search page.
You can enter as much or as little information as you like, but
remember the returned results will depend upon the scope of the search
requested. The easiest way to work within search criteria is to think of a
simple scenario; if you visited a library and asked the librarian if they
had any book on sports cars, they would take you to the area containing
all the topics covered by that subject. However, if you asked the
librarian if they had any books on the F1 McLaren, they would take you to
the exact book.
In other words, by searching for "John" you will obtain a
huge list of returns and have to check each and every one in the hope of
finding the one you were looking for. But if on the other hand you
searches for "John William Pitcairn" the returns would be much
smaller and therefore easier to check.
The search can be for any section of the families contained herein,
such as dates or place names, please remember, that some of the dates are
circa and that older place names might be spelt differently than they are
now known by, as they have been taken from original sources.
Have fun searching through the Family Branches, and please notify us
via the contact page, should you have any questions or problems using the
be aware that this search engine is only a very basic tool at the moment;
it is our intention to eventually make this more exact in its results. It
may well be difficult to use for now as it only displays where the name or
date can be found in the general index of the individual families.
