This is the Home Page for my family history website. The website is intended to make the results of my genealogical and family history research available to my many cousins, to genealogists researching into connected families, and to historians who may be interested in particular individuals from my ancestry. The site is under continuing development, as my research progresses, and updates are summarised here.
The site basically contains four types of material:
- Family trees (pedigrees), which I have constructed manually in order to show as clearly as possible the various lines of descent, and often rather complicated connections between different families in my ancestry
- Family history pages, which give narrative descriptions of the history of different families and biographical notes on individuals
- Catalogues of source material including documents, books, letters, portraits, photographs, artifacts etc., many of which have been passed down through the generations and are retained by myself and my relatives
- Scanned images and documents for some of the original source material, in some cases with my own transcriptions and annotations.
The menu items in the panel on the left give access to index pages for these different types of material.
The best "entry points" for anyone wanting to explore the website are the pages respectively on my father's ancestry and mother's ancestry, which contain brief accounts of the various families involved and give links to the relevant family trees and family history pages.
