Our Mission

To provide communication regarding heritage/genealogical information pertaining to Cornwall, United Kingdom, to members in the Pacific Northwest region, promote the preservation of public and private Cornish heritage/genealogical material and to cooperate with other organizations in the furtherance of mutual objectives.

Who are we?
We are people with an interest in the history and culture of Cornwall, United Kingdom; in the contributions of Cornish immigrants; and in Cornish heritage and genealogy. We live mostly in the Northwestern United States and British Columbia.
