Welcome to the Newbiggin by the Sea Genealogy Project

 

Since 2012 we have been working together to create a community family history,‘a community family tree’, an online record  of everyone who has ever lived in the small town of Newbiggin by the Sea, Northumberland, England (2011 population 6,308)

Everyone is welcome to join us in our task. Indeed our work will never succeed without the participation of thousands of people providing information and hundreds of people joining the project and taking part as members and supporters and volunteers.

Newbiggin by the Sea Genealogy Project is a members organisation run by an elected Management Committee made up of people with a strong connection to the place. We aim to ensure that the Project continues to develop and grow as a sustainable resource for everyone who is interested in the past, present and future of Newbiggin by the Sea. 

We collect public information & information freely given about everyone who has ever lived in Newbiggin by the Sea. However, we only display information about people after they have died.

We explore the sometimes very complex inter connections between families in what has been a fishing village for hundreds of years but we also want to know about everyone who has arrived more recently- even if it was yesterday.

We are seeking facts and figures, making copies of photographs and documents, recording the voices of Newbiggin people and through publications, events, music and exhibitions we are telling the tales.

Everybody matters, everybody has a tale of their own to tell.

We want to uncover the stories which have been forgotten and remember those which are passing from living memory into history. We are interested in the tales which haven’t yet been told and the people who have been overlooked

Newbiggin by the Sea is a beautiful place but it is a community where people have needed to be resilient and to look out for each other in order to get by. Whatever the fortunes of the town it is somewhere which has always been rich in the character of its people.

In a way this is every person’s story of Newbiggin by the Sea.

At the moment we believe that the Newbiggin by the Sea Genealogy Project is unique simply because we haven’t heard  that any other community anywhere in the world has attempted what we are trying to do. If there’s somewhere else out there who is – we’d be delighted to hear from you – to share experience and learn.

In 2019 we established the Newbiggin by the Sea Family History Centre at 82a Front Street 'doon the street' in Newbiggin. We know that our own centre, open two hours per day every day, will provide a huge new boost to our work.
