Welcome to my Dakin family research blog.

I have been researching my family history for a number of years and so far the earliest person I have been able to trace back to is John Dakyn of Castleton in Derbyshire, UK, who was born in 1709.  This site is dedicated to the recording of the lives of the descendants of John and to the continuing investigation of his ancestry. The main areas of habitation of this extended family are Castleton, Derbyshire; Haslingden, Lancashire; Blackpool, Lancashire; The USA.

Articles such as biographies of family members and family events appear on the Articles page at the top or down the right hand side. Within the articles there are red links to associated documents. These documents will open up in a new window. Access to the Certificates page on request. There are 37 Birth, Marriage, Death Certificates.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any interest in this area. Leave a comment in the Guestbook. On Ancestry.co.uk my username is matdakin

Many thanks
