Curious Fox

I was alerted to a curious little site recently, which may appeal to the curious out there. It’s called Curious Fox, a UK site, which is a village by village contact site for anybody researching family history, genealogy and local history in the UK and Ireland.

Every UK county, town and village has a page for family history, local history, surname and genealogy enquiries. You can search to find your own family village or town. You can find neighbouring villages and it even has maps – great maps, and maps from different time periods for the same village.

To do a family name search you need to register. This is free of charge, but there is an option to subscribe to the website for further information and service. Costs are small, but it helps to fund the site, without the use of banners and other affiliate links. The registration is to protect members privacy and stop spam mail.

Certainly worth a look if you have ancestors from the UK or Ireland.
