The Somerset Team covers the county of Somerset in South West England. Somerset borders Bristol and Gloucestershire to the north, Wiltshire to the east, Dorset to the south-east, and Devon to the south-west.
Our team aims to make all Somerset profiles the best they can be. Our goal is to leave a lasting legacy for future generations, and to help current researchers in their quest to learn about their family history, bringing them one step closer to discovering the myriad of people it has taken for them to draw breath.
