GENUKI is a free website that allows you to search several regional levels in the United Kingdom for genealogy and family history resources. They provide some online collections and link to other collections.


“The aim of GENUKI is to serve as a comprehensive virtual reference library of genealogical information that is relevant to the British Isles, i.e. Great Britain (England, Wales, Scotland), Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands…. It is organised so as to make it easy to find what information on what topics is available online related to given geographical localities (even down to parish level). However, it is not just a list of links to information elsewhere but rather it also contains a large and ever-growing set of specially-produced information pages (almost 115,000, containing over 5 Gbytes of text, as of March 2014).”

The simplest way to use the site may be by location.
