FOREWORD

 

This part of the site contains the extensive research material made available to anyone interested in Manx history and genealogy by the late Jim Roscow.

The main body of the material comprises essays on the history of Castletown, together with transcripts and indexes of the Rent Rolls for Castletown, the former capital of the Isle of Man.

The tabular data was originally in the form of Paradox Database files, and anyone who wishes to receive the material in this format should contact NGC.
