Ludlow Family History and Genealogy research
"A one-name study of the Ludlow surname"
Welcome to the Ludlow Family Research website put together by a small group of people who all share the same surname and a quest to learn more about the history of the Ludlow name. A short history of the origin of the Ludlow Surname has been written by Robin Ludlow of Warminster.
You have probably come here to try to increase the knowledge of your Ludlow family ancestry and we hope that we are able to help you achieve those goals through information on this website. We are continuously adding data as the website is only a couple of months old, so please do return regularly.
Using the website
The website is a combination of general Ludlow research and family line specific information.
Probably the first thing you should do is determine which family line you belong to and you can do this by searching for yourself or a Ludlow ancestor in GRO transcriptions as part of our Database of Ludlows (not all entries have family lines assigned but most births prior to 1911 do, so try an ancestor if your name gives no family line).
You can then go to our Ludlow Family Lines family lines page to see what resources are available for your line and also look at the Wills, IPMs and Admins and view and contribute Documents & Photos for your line. Documents are stored in Google Documents - this should give you no problems viewing them but if you do have problems (or wish to add your own documents) it is best to sign up for a google account.
It is also recommended that you register with the site to ensure you are notified of important updates, and also that if you have any questions or comments please do go to our forum and ask there.
Thank you for visiting our website
