Wharfedale & Craven One-Place Study


Wharfedale & Craven Region

The Wharfedale & Craven Genealogical Study is an ongoing project to construct the family lines and histories of individuals and families who may have lived the Wharfedale and Craven areas of Yorkshire.

The work for this project started in the Summer 1996 and a website (in some form) has been reporting the extracts of this work since early 1997.

To access the genealogical information you will need to register for and log into an account, but there is no cost for this.

Currently, the project database holds information offline on ~370,000 individual (from ~100,000 families) - the information on the web represents a "single" interconnected tree extract from this database comprising ~255,000 individuals (from ~65,000 families).

Access to information for an additional ~113,000 individuals can be made available for a donation towards the upkeep of the project and website - please see the link at the top of the webpage.
