Welcome to the Bandy Family History Website
This website is dedicated to promoting interest in, and contact among members of, the worldwide Bandy family. The site focuses on research into the history and genealogy of the Bandy family, but also carries family news and advertising to encourage family contact. We depend entirely on contributed material to keep this site fresh and interesting so please keep sending me your genealogies, raw data, opinions, photographs and news. Our policy is to publish everything we get. My thanks to all who helped us.
There are many genealogies on this site, all with Bandy family content covering Great Britain, Canada, Australia, USA and New Zealand. The main Genealogies cover multiple Bandy families (and others) from England and the US. There are many others in the "other genealogies" section with different content, all worth studying.

the facts: eg.: names, dates, and places - cannot be copyrighted. But the narratives are the result of my research and creativity, they and the images on this website are copyrighted.

All that genealogists can do with the meagre public records of past ages, is put the most reasonable construction they can on the "facts" before them. We know that the public record is sometimes wrong or misleading and we know that we might not yet have found all the records that could be relevant. We also know that oft repeated family "traditions" can sometimes be wrong as well. So these genealogies are presented as an honest attempt to reconstruct the families of the past from the records and other information at our disposal. Our conclusions may be incorrect and we apologise if you find them so. We try to show the evidence we have used and to highlight assumptions when we have made them, but space and time prevents us from recording exactly how we reached our conclusions in every case. But be assured that every conclusion and every assumption was reached after careful consideration of the alternatives. The details of living people are not published here but may be contained in our private files. Please contact us with your information.
We particularly welcome any corrections or additions to our work as well as any further support to our conclusions or pointers to records that we have not yet found that would improve the accuracy of our work. Please send them, preferably with references to the public record or other personal evidence, to the author or to this website.
