The area of interest covered by this group is that which is now known as Ryedale,
as designated by the boundaries formerly administered by the Ryedale District Council,
as at our foundation in 2005. The changes to administrative boundaries, which occurred in 2023 may mean that some people could have difficulty in finding just where Ryedale is.
It is a very large area, in the heart of Yorkshire,
so we hope our identity will not be lost in the councils' reshuffle.

This area is shown on the information map
which can be seen HERE

The towns, Malton, Norton, Pickering, Kirkbymoorside and Helmsley are at the centre of our area, and the boundaries extend to Hawnby, Bilsdale and Rosedale to the north, Terrington and Sherrif Hutton in the West, Ebberston and Sherburn in the East and to Thixendale and Weaverthorpe on the Yorkshire Wolds to the south. Parts of this area are also covered by our friends at the East Yorkshire Family History Society, The Cleveland, North Yorkshire & South Durham Family History Society and The City of York & District Family History Society, all of which overlap our area of interest
