My Family History
THAT THE FAMILY TREE DETAILS ARE CURRENTLY OFF-LINE
When my mother passed away I realised that I knew little about the people in the famiily photos that I inherited. I tried to find out more, and this led me to researching my family history. With the help of several relations (Vicky Todd, Candice Darbey & Moira Ruddick) and various researches in records offices I'm making reasonable progress)
But there's much more to Family History than just a tree, and I want to include some of the old family archives. These will be linked in to individual entries in the family tree where possible, and the archive links on the left show what I have been able to upload so far.
It's still early days, and I'im still trying to work out how best to present the family tree on the Web. However, the incredible feedback I've had suggests I'm getting it more or less correct!
Each individual has a dedicated page, with a summary of all the information I have to date. Descendency trees exist for only three lines at the moment (see list top-left, or click on the green "tree" icon in the tree below). While I am fairly rigorous in not claiming an ancestor unless I can prove it, none of the pages include sources or proofs. I hope at some point to be able to indicate which are proven, and which are very likely, and which are speculative (although for the time being, none of my speculative ancestors are included)
The data for the pages is generated using The Master Genealogist, which is then massaged by software I have written myself (sorry, despite many requests, it's not really practical to make that software available).
I have tried to make the pages self-explanatory ... but I'm always open to suggestions, so please email me if you have any thoughts or comments (especially if you're part of the family!!). Only a handful currently have pictures associated with them, and these are indicated in the tree by the little icon.
