European Ancestors – Channel Islands

The Channel Islands is made up of five different islands, each one represented by their own flag, as 1407312087illustrated here. The islands are Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm.

The islands are located in the English Channel close to the Normandy coastline and are a crown dependency. The islands are governed by two Bailiwicks – One representing Jersey and other Guernsey. The Channel Islands was the only territory within the crown dependency to be occupied by Germany in the Second World War.

Whilst the Channel Islands falls outside of the remit of European Ancestors, I have nonetheless provided a set of links and general information for the island to assist you in your research.
