Welcome to The Annals of the Annals, a website dedicated to research into the Annal surname. The site was first launched in 2002 and was relaunched in October 2017 as an 84th birthday present for my father, Eric Annal.
The aim of the site is to provide a home for the research that I’ve carried out over the past 40 years but also to act as a focal point for all researchers who have a shared interest in the name and its origins.
The name occurs most frequently in Orkney and Fife and, although it’s not by any means a common surname, it has spread all around the world and crops up in other parts of the UK, in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand and even has a branch in Argentina.
If you have Annal ancestors and would like to contribute to this website, please contact me today: firstname.lastname@example.org
