AboutWelcome to theislandwiki, a gateway to two historical websites featuring the Channel Islands, a group of small islands in the English Channel, close to the French coast, which are possessions of the British Crown and part of the British Isles. Originally part of the Guernsey Society website, theislandwiki still benefits from the generous sponsorship of its web hosting expenses by the Society.
The websites are the historical encyclopaedias devoted to the Bailiwicks of Guernsey and Jersey, Donkipedia and Jerripedia, which have been established since 2010 and have since built up a substantial worldwide audience, interested in the histories of the Channel Islands and their families. These websites contain the largest online repository of information about the islands, with hundreds of family trees, thousands of family records and an illustrated general history of the islands.
We also have links below to three Facebook groups which will be of value to those researching their family history in Jersey and Guernsey, and to those interested in old photographs of Jersey.
