Descendants of Jean Besnard

Although the submitter of this tree has suggested that the first two generations of Besnards were born in Jersey, we can find no records to substantiate this. Indeed, the only baptism records we have found are for John Thomas August Bernard and his brother Joseph John, at generation 3, but it may be that other members of the tree were baptised in Roman Catholic churches. Other sources provided substantiate a large part of the tree, and information from a Besnard descendant in January 2018 resulted in additional modifications

Record Search

If you want to search for records for any name in this family tree, or for any other family name, just click below on the first letter of the family name you are interested in. This will open a new tab in your browser giving you a list of family names beginning with that letter, for which there are baptism records in our database of half a million church and public registry records.

You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.

The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.
