You will find that the site looks at its best on a full size computer screen, the bigger the better!  I am slowly compiling a parallel series of pages optimised for smart-phone size screens. This is not possible for every page, some like the family trees just cant be viewed on a tiny screen.


Pages that have a mobile equivalent have a "Mobile" link at the top of the page. If you are on a "Mobile" page then any links on that page will take you to the Mobile equivalent of the next page where there is one available, or to the regular page if not. From a Mobile page, the link at the top takes you to the regular page.

To avoid any possible confusion as to what sort of page you are viewing, you will see that the text boxes on the Mobile pages have a pale blue background, not the white of the regular pages.

At the end of the day, this site is always going to look better on a large screen and I would urge you too use one if possible

For starters, as I am the author and compiler of all this guff, I designate myself as "Ground Zero" The entire family tree contains the records of over 3000 people extending over 26 generations, they are numbered sequentially. Me and my generation are Generation Zero, My parents, grandparents etc etc are numbered from me with positive numbers, so my Great Grandma would be generation 3 or G3. The generations after me have negative numbers so forinstance, George & Jessica are G-2.

To avoid information overload. The site is divided into a number of sections, each is self contained with its own introduction, Contents page, menu etc. There are plenty of links between pages & sections.

There is a "Master Menu" to move you around the site quickly. this only displays when you move your mouse over the "Master Menu" icon, this is in the same place on every page, embedded in the header near the middle of the page.

I have done my best to display the information in a logical sequence. If you would like a guided tour of the site,  just click on the green "Continue" button on each page and it will walk you through the website section by section. This is probably the best way to view the site, at least until you are familiar with the way it is set out.

To help put the information in perspective I have included some historical notes as to what was going on on the rest of the world.
