Welcome to the web site for genealogists who are researching their ancestors in the north of England.

Are you, like lead miner Thomas William Moffat on the left,  digging for your family in Cumberland, Durham, Northumberland, Westmorland and beyond? If so, please let North Pennine Ancestors help you dig in the mine of information that is available.

Take a look down the "Start digging" mine and see which of your surnames are being researched by others. If your research names are amongst the 1631 listed, take a note of the reference numbers, then drift to the "Contributors" buttons to dig up more detailed information and discover which seam your cousins are working in.  

Feel free to submit your own research interests, you may find a cousin looking back up the shaft at you.

See below for details of many more pages of information that may provide a light at the end of the genealogical tunnel or give an insight into how your ancestors lived and worked. Good luck with your research and thank you for visiting the North Pennine Ancestors web site.
