This site is for the FREE exchange of Joslin Family History World-Wide. I have never made any charges for Joslin Data
The quest for my 'Roots' over the past thirty years, has led to the accumulation of a vast amount of Joslin data from all parts of the world.
The internet is now the only medium that allows me to communicate with all my Joslin contacts,
and to freely distribute the valuable data that I have acquired.
Personal, Private Free help is available from me by the internet:
Download a blank pedigree chart, fill in what you know, send a copy back to me and I will add what I know to the chart and retune it to you
this will also show your unique Joslin number.         FREE blank Pedigree Chart            or email me at peterjoslin@btinternet.com
or you can phone me to discuss Joslin Family History (07887882285) and remember; No annual subscriptions or charges are involved

Specialist pages have been created for the Joslin's in
Essex, Devon and Suffolk
(the three counties with high populations of Joslin surnames): 
Joslin's in Essex 1881census and  Suffolk 1851Joslin's  
 Suffolk Gosling 1851
  Essex 1851
  Essex 1861 census the Devon 1851census
 Devon 1881 census 
The Devon Joslin pre-1837 marriages  

Then  UK 1881 census this is very detailed
and you can still get your own copy on CD
It is also free to search as it was completed in cooperation
with family history society volunteers 

Thomas Merchant Crewe Joslin &  Dr Barnardo's in London
and then Joslin Wills
, the Chateau de Josselin in Brittany 
Essex Joslin Marriages

A large amount of American Joslin data includes
 Census and Social Security death index.
and the Joslin's on the Ellis Island Site
US 1930 Census
the census in America is like ours (very ten years) but...
started earlier and people can have access to the data
after a closure of only 70 years unlike our 100 year rule
SO... on the left you will find links to all the
Joslin names in the
US census 1930 - 1790 

A distribution map for UK Joslin of events
 i.e. Births, Deaths & Marriages
this gives you a good idea of where in England
are the main populations of our surname since 1850

Heraldry forms a major part in the understanding of
Joslin history and has been used for centauries in
the pedigrees of our ancient families
Coats of Arms for Joslin's Heraldry

A page with details of
and of Saint Gilbert and the  Gilbertines 

I also have well over a thousand certificates of
Joslin Births  Marriages Deaths; B.M.D's
and I am still working on the best way
to place the details on this web site.
Also have a look at what some counties are doing
to make the BMD certificates easier to acquire
LancashireBMD and UKBMD
I have all the UK Joslin marriages from the I.G.I.
on this site, I hope to add all the Christenings/births soon,
as we have about three times the amount of data
the page will take a long time to load.


Peter Walter Joslin
your web master and founder
of 'Joslin Research'

My father and his family were
all born in the Cressing area
of Essex, England
Mum's story

if you have a connection
with the surname
and GOSLING etc

Consider joining the
 'Josselin Society'

also consider joining a
Family History Society
that will help you with your
Joslin research,
I have been a member of
the following:
Society of Genealogists

Society for Family History

Family History Society

Family History Society

and the one on my door-step

You will need the
 'Acrobat Reader'
on your computer in order
to view some of my files,
click on the icon below to download the latest version

The best search engine
I have found has to be

Google search box
what would we do without it?

JOSLIN and the main
variants of the surname
are registered with the

Guild of One-Name Studies

Regular visitors to this site will have noticed a major section for the
surname of GOSLINGS 
The pages contain a lot of data so be patient as the loading time can be long
if you have a slow modem.
This is a provisional site until their own dedicated site has been established,
so if you feel disposed to help;
I would be VERY pleased.
GOSLIN, GOSLING etc has been registered with the
Guild of One-Name Studies
We have over three times the number of
Goslings to that of Joslin and the names are often confused.
A page on the GOSLIN/JOSLIN confusion, 

 would like to add as many photographs as are available
to the site and this database would then be
available to Joslin's for their own research.
This would be of People, Churches, Monumental Inscriptions,
Documents, Houses etc.
all the downloadable images would be available free of charge.

I strongly recommend that you join a family history society
that is in the area for your research,
you will find like minded people
that want to help you with your research
