Getting the Most out of GENUKI

GENUKI provides a virtual reference library of genealogical information of particular relevance to the UK and Ireland. It is a non-commercial service, maintained by a charitable trust and a group of volunteers.


GENUKI is a free, volunteer-run, site for family historians. The site's objectives, structure and system of distributed maintenance responsibility will be described briefly. Then, working live on the GENUKI site, Malcolm will demonstrate the key elements of the site's hierarchic structure and the various navigation features within the site will be explained. Particular attention will be given to the gazetteer and church database. Finding an appropriate Family History Society and how to report problems (or provide additional content) will also be covered. The events listing GENEVA will be introduced. There should be plenty of time left for questions with, all being well, interactive answers on the live GENUKI site.Malcolm Austen

His interest in family history was sparked by a family bible and his first family history database was a WordPerfect for DOS mailmerge file. He is currently a trustee of GENUKI and chairman of the Oxfordshire FHS. He also spent (past tense now) several years on the committee of the Federation of Family History Societies. He is a member of the Kent, Folkestone & District, Sussex and Wiltshire societies - as well as of the Society of Genealogists and the Guild of One-Name Studies.
