Welcome to the Devon Genealogy group on Genealogy Wise. Please share with us your interests and your problems on the discussion board so that all related discussions are kept in one place where they can easily be found. It is also very easy to go back and edit your discussion posts if you make a mistake. This is intended as a friendly open forum for the discussion of any Devon-related matters.
Genealogy Wise is growing at such a rate that it is difficult to keep up with everything. If you know of any other Devon-related groups please let me know so that I can add a link below. It won't be possible to list surname groups as there will be too many, unless of course someone wants to offer to co-ordinate a new group to list all the Devon surname groups!
Devon has a strong maritime tradition and the photo I have chosen to represent the group is a picture of the sea taken from Hartland Quay on the North Devon coast. The coastline here is particularly treacherous and has been the scene of many shipwrecks. You can share your photos with us on the discussion board. Simply click on the camera symbol in the editing toolbar and your photo will be added to your posting.LinksGenuki DevonDevon Family History Society official websiteDevon Family History Society on FacebookDevon Record OfficeDevon Rootsweb mailing listFriends of Devon ArchivesThe Devon DNA ProjectDevon GenWebHistory pages on BBC DevonDevon Heritage websiteDevon parish groups on Genealogy WiseBishops NymptonBuckland BrewerBucks MillsBulkworthyCruwys MorchardFenitonRelated groups on Genealogy WiseNorth Devon emigrantsThe Lost Colonists of Roanoke, North Carolina
