The Yorkshire Dales have an abundance of small villages, all with a history behind them. Were your ancestors a part of that history? With baptism, marriage and burial records transcribed from the Parish Registers, you will be bound to find them. Being one of the areas for which early censuses survived, some of them can help you to identify your lost relatives from as early as 1811. Rather than being baptised in the Parish Church, your ancestors may have been Non-Conformists. Are their records to be found here?
Whether you are looking for local historical information about the area or want to be in touch with like-minded people researching this area, membership of the Wharfedale Family History Group could well be the answer.
