The Shankland Database

The Shankland One-Name Study uses a home-grown database program developed from Microsoft Access in order to manage its data. The database can store data relating to people, families, life events, census, or indeed any other data required, including document images, photographs, or even audio or video clips. The basic data sources that have been searched in order to find Shankland data are listed in Data Sources.

I have to apologise that none of this is available online, although all of it is freely available to anyone who writes in requesting information. There are two main reasons for this:

In other words, putting the database online would cost me money and time, and I would get absolutely nothing back!

So if you would like to know more about your Shankland ancestry, or indeed if you have information about your family that you would like to share - get in touch, I shall be delighted to hear from you.

I should add that we try to maintain appropriate privacy for our correspondents - for instance, we don't pass on email addresses unless explicitly authorised to do so. But I'm glad to say that we have been able in several cases to put related enquirers in touch with each other, frequently to family branches that they never knew existed.
