Researching St Ives?

The St Ives, Cornwall, Family History and Genealogy Group provide a personal genealogical service for you if your family came from St Ives and the surrounding area. The first half hour is free and thereafter the charge is a reasonable £5.00 per hour.

They have ready access to traditional records, like census and BMBs for local parishes often available in other ways.

Unique sources include:

Barnoon Cemetery Monumental Inscriptions, cemetery plans and photographs

Monumental Inscriptions for St Ives and District

Files on hundreds of local families and individuals. These have been provided by families in the town and people researching their ancestors who lived in St Ives.

Trade Directories for St Ives for 1783, 1709-99, 1823, 1830, 1856, 1873, 1878, 1883, 1889, 1893, 1902, 1906, 1910, 1914, 1919, 1923, 1926, 1930, 1935, 1939.

We would also like your assistance to add to our migration files to learn where St Ives families moved to from the 1840s onwards."
