Wedgwood Family History Portal

Wedgwood/Wedgewood Registered with the Guild of One Name Studies

The Wedgwood Family History project has had a web presence since 1996. The old site, hosted from 1996-2009 by Geocities has had to be closed due to the cessation of free website provision by their parent company Yahoo!

This new site is part of a package of genealogical resources, which will, when migration is complete, incorporate both genealogical and biographical data. The matrix below will be expanded as content is added.

The award-winningWedgwood Museum is run by an independent trust. A New museum experience (including expanded public exhibition and access to the huge Wedgwood archive including papers relating to the family dating from the middle ages) was opened at the end of 2009. It is an excellent museum and very much deserves of our support.
