The Entwistle Family History Association was founded in 1999 in Lancashire, England, to bring together Entwistles and descendants of Entwistles who wanted to find out more about their family roots. Many of our world-wide members are not surnamed Entwistle but somewhere back in their family tree the name appears in one of its several spellings.
We would like to welcome you to our website. Feel free to browse at will, using any of the information to enhance your family knowledge. To get the best out of the EFHA, though, you really need to become a member at a very modest annual price and read more about your ancestry in our magazine, “Twissle Times” which members receive 4 times each year.
Whether you decide to join or not, enjoy your visit! If you have any suggestions for improvements or wish to comment on what you find – especially if you spot any errors – please contact us.
