Surname Interests

Our Surname Interest search provides details of surnames being researched by members of the Lancashire Family History & Heraldry Society, usually specifying a particular period and county, and often a locality within the county.

Once you find a surname you will have the option to submit a request to the researching member for collaboration.


The search routine is capable of supporting searches including wildcards (and substrings) such as “*” or “?” so searching for “Cap*” will display instances of “Capstan”, “Cape” or “Capital” for instance and search for “Cap?” would similarly display “Cape”.

Names With Apostrophes

If the name you are looking for has an apostrophe e.g. O'Toole O'Rourke etc the system does not recognise them so just put OToole or ORourke without either an apostrophe or a space.

National Surname Interest Listing

Since March 2020 the Family History Federation now provides a national database of surname interests (which of course includes our own records). It is recommended to do your enquiry from their Surname Interests page.
