This website began in July 1997 as a personal genealogy page but has evolved into a site focused on the overall genealogy of the Orkney Islands of Scotland.  Its ultimate scope is all Orcadian surnames from all of the islands.  I have also included some general data and background information on my family including my personal genealogy research.  All the data can be freely downloaded for non-commercial purposes.

I thank everyone who has visited this site and provided encouragement for its continuous expansion.  I welcome all suggestions and will add additional data as time allows based upon reasonable requests.  I am also happy to include other contributors' data and website links. --Walt Custer
