Calling all Adamthwaites (and Adamthwaite descendants)

This page explains how you can ask questions, send me corrections or information, or request to be added to the Adamthwaite Mailing list on Mail Chimp (you can unsubscribe at any time)


If your surname is Adamthwaite, or if one of your ancestors was an Adamthwaite, please tell me where and when the most distant Adamthwaite that you know of in your family was born.  Although I do not publish any details of living people on this website, I do hold up-to-date information about births, marriages and deaths and I have a worldwide mailing list of Adamthwaite researchers who may be able to share any information relevant to your family.  And who knows, you might have information that could solve a genealogical puzzle!

Please stay in touch!

The European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and how they affect the Adamthwaite One-name Study:

In addition to responses to individual requests for information by email, which are not affected by the GDPR, I use our Adamthwaite Mail Chimp mailing list to circulate occasional Newsletters to all members (generally only two or three times a year).  The data held on our Mail Chimp list is as follows:

your NAME


the DATE you joined the list

a NOTE setting out with Adamthwaite line you belong to and details of any DNA test you have taken to represent that Adamthwaite line.


The Mailing List does not hold any other information and will never be shared with any other organisation.  


You can unsubscribe from the Adamthwaite Mailing List at any time, simply by clicking the unsubscribe link which appears at the foot of every mailing.

Because I did not want to publish my email address on this website, this page used to include a Contact Form, that you could complete and it would automatically be sent to my inbox.  This worked well for many years, but suddenly I have started receiving reams of rather unpleasant spam emails.  


So I am trying another system ...

If you have any queries or corrections, or would like to share information about any of your Adamthwaite ancestors, please send me the following information,  making sure that you explain which Adamthwaite family line interests you and exactly HOW you are connected to that family.


If you would like to be included on the Adamthwaite Mailing List on Mail Chimp, you also need to include a statement confirming that YOU AGREE to your email address being added to this list, as explained on the Contact page of the website.


In addition to explaining how you connect to the Adamthwaites, I need to know

- your full name,

- the country where you live, and

- your email address.


If you have already taken a DNA test, please also include details of the type of test and the Company you tested with.


Please send this information in an email with the subject line "ADAMTHWAITE One-name Study" to


adamthwaite at one - name dot org


(removing all the spaces and replacing 'dot' and 'at' with the relevant symbols!)

Can you help further our knowledge about the origins of the Adamthwaites by participating in our DNA project? There is more information to help you decide if you wish to be involved in our DNA section


IMPORTANT: All organisations in the UK now have to comply with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). Please read the notes below which explain what data I hold on our Adamthwaite Mailing List and how it is used.
