European Ancestors – Isle of Man

IOM FlagMost well known as the venue for the TT Motorsport races, the island is located in the North Sea between Great Britain and Ireland

The Isle of Man is a British Crown Dependency, which is self governing, however, Britain is responsible for it’s defence and external affairs. Britain also retains some powers to legislate the Island should the needs arise.

The Isle of Man is not part of the European Union.

The island has been inhabited since 6500 BC and is one of the Celtic nations. Manx language is a branch of Gaelic and it’s cultural influence began as early as the fifth century.

Whilst the Isle of Man falls outside of the parameters of European Ancestors, I felt it was worth including it here regardless and have therefore provided a set of links and general information for the island to assist you in your research.
