Welcome to the Bandy Family History Website
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 (subject to owners permission)
and to keep it published, we don't remove any useful data once
it has been published - unless it is updated, extended or otherwise improved
We have had a great response and lots of support.
We now get around 10 hits a day on average, down from our peak of around
14, which is is pretty good for a genealogical site
specialising in a rare surname. I hope that every Bandy on the Internet knows about
this website by now. Please make sure that all your relatives know about us! The site includes masses of contributed material covering the US and Canada as well as Australia and England.
Thanks to our all our registered researchers and others we now
have over 2,600 pages and, at over 60 Meg, must be one of the biggest sites of this type on the web.
