I am researching the surnames: Williams, Bartle, George, Mitchell, Nicholas, and Bird in Penryn.

I have more materials than listed on this website for which I can provide lookups.  I am always looking to add more genealogical and historical information about Penryn to my website.  I will gladly accept any materials in any form.  If you have general information about Penryn you can add it to the Penryn Wiki.
