In 1999, I started to trace the family histories of my grandparents and those of my wife, Pat. I made progress quite quickly, mainly due to the information and many helpful people available on the web, but also through many hours patient research. There is more background information available elsewhere if you are interested.

This homepage is intended as an easy entry to the site and to the family names listed below which now numbers over 8,000 pages. Hover over the family names below for an indication of where they were from. Those highlighted in bold link to an accompanying narrative, while the others link to the most recent family connection. As an alternative, try my Tribal or FamilyTree Guide pages.

You can use the excellent Atomz search facility above if you are looking for a specific individual and there is also a 'cousin calculator' to help you work out exact relationships.

Print
You can use the Print Friendly button like the one at the top of this page to create PDFs or a printable version that is easier on your print cartridges. This is primarily used on the narratives and Yesterdays pages.

Yesterdays

I have now included separate search engines for the Yesterdays section and my family history.

Health Warning
This site is very much work in progress and accuracy cannot be guaranteed, particularly pre-19th century records that are harder to cross-reference. It is always a good idea to check any possible links with source material. Please contact me to correct any mistakes.

Please enjoy what these pages have to offer.
