The purpose of this list is to discuss genealogy, local, and family history in the historical English county of Lancashire, UK.  Discussion of family history, migration patterns, immigration, historical sketches, census data, wills, vital records (births, marriages, deaths), and web sites relating to Lancashire is encouraged. 

This list replaces the LancsGen list formerly hosted by RootsWeb.  Archives for that list can be found at

If you are new to family history research in the United Kingdom, an excellent place to start is a thorough perusal of GENUKI, genealogical information for England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man at
