Our project began with the construction of genealogies for Kearsleys of English descent in Lancashire & Durham counties and now, four years later, expanding to include Kearsleys worldwide. We have more than 80 trees and almost 3750 Kearsleys & Kersleys in our database The second part of this research project involves DNA testing. We hope to establish key Kearsleys lines and determine their relationship, if any, to one another. Since it is our hope to learn more about the migratory patterns of Kearsleys to other parts of the world we welcome a wide range of Kearsley descendants to participate in our study. Please join. The more participation the more successful the project.
