Genuki

GENUKI is a genealogy web portal, run as a charitable trust. It "provides a virtual reference library of genealogical information that is of particular relevance to the UK & Ireland".[1] It gives access to a large collection of information, with the emphasis on primary sources, or means to access them, rather than on existing genealogical research.

Name

The name derives from "GENealogy of the UK and Ireland", although its coverage is wider than this. From the GENUKI website:

"The UK and Ireland are regarded, for the purposes of this Genealogical Information Service, as being made up of England, Ireland (i.e. Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland), Wales, and Scotland, together with the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. Together, these constitute the British Isles - which is a geographical term for a group of islands lying off the north-west coast of mainland Europe. (Legally, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man are largely self governing, and are not part of the United Kingdom.)"

Structure

The website has a well defined structure at four levels.

The structure is shown diagrammatically in the "Contents and Site Map".[8]

Subject headings

At each level, some of the subject headings from the list prepared by the Family History Library in Salt Lake City are used. The full list is:

Contents

In some instances GENUKI pages include actual information, but more often they provide links to sources of information, either as online links or by providing information about hard copy publications or repositories. For many locations, a description is quoted from an old (and therefore out-of-copyright) gazetteer. As GENUKI is maintained solely by volunteers, the level of detail varies in different parts of the site. Material on the GENUKI website is copyright, and also protected by UK database right, and it must only be used for personal research and not copied onto other websites.[9]
