This website provides information on the PASK, and PASKE families. If you are interested in researching the name, or finding out more about PASK families use the links to access the substantial amount of worldwide information. The research represents the work of many researchers and in return we encourage other researchers to include their information.


The information in this website covers detailed narratives for many of these Pask families. These narratives can be easily searched by Surname, or Master Index, or by searching the website. The narratives section is slightly different to the main pages as it is generated and updated from the database on a regular basis and contains over 100 photographs and 1,700 webpages. We hope that you find something of interest. If not, contact us and we will endeavour to help you.
