About the study

I joined the Guild in October of 2016, but it wasn't until July 2017 that I have had time to get fully conversant with the process. Writing a family history book for the family got in the way.

JACOBS was my mother's maiden name and she was born in London in 1909. She travelled with her parents Thomas Joseph JACOBS (1877-1946) and Annie Eliza ALDERTON (1879-1944) to New Zealand in 1920.

Thomas' father was John Jinks JACOBS  and the name "Jinks" has always intrigued me to now further my research into the JACOBS name.

If you are a JACOBS,  I would love to hear your story.
