My Family Lines
>>>>>>>>>>> This Site is Under Development and is not complete in many areas <<<<<<<<<<

When I started my genealogical journey in 1993 my thoughts were to trace back all of my lines to where they entered Australia and then find all of the descendents of those immigrants and the few convicts I discovered in Australia.  In the many years hence I have not yet completed that task but have in the mean time discovered many ancestors beyond the Australian shores and in the process made contact with many "cousins" and made many wonderful contacts worldwide.

The following are the main names you will find in the pages of My Family Lines.
Paternal Lines - Heijbroek / Heybrock, Brown, Corcoran / Cochoran, Kirke (by adoption)
Maternal Lines - Logan, Smith, Clarke, Wood, Prosser, Phillips, Cort, Entwistle, McBrien

The site is constructed using John Cardinal's Second Site based on data held in The Master Genealogist. The complete database of names is accessible through the Surnames tabs.  I have supplemented this with custom index pages (links below) on the main lines and included some narrative on the family and status of my research on each of these pages.

Of particular note is the Kilbirnie Logans and Connections page which has is a significant documentation of the Logan line from Kilbirnie and the many related families and their descendants to Canada, US, Australia, New Zealand & England.  Major families include Allan, Barclay, Craig, Houston, Knox, Lang, Law, Orr, Peebles and Walker.  There are a number of researchers who have contributed to this area of study which continues to expand both within Kilbirnie and worldwide.  As part of this research I have joined the Logan DNA study which is attempting to link Logan families worldwide using DNA signatures where there is limited or no paper trail.  Further details are available on the Kilbirnie Logans and Connections page.

In the continuing spirit of sharing and building on the collective knowledge of my ancestors and the many connected families, My Family Lines documents the current state of much of my research.  As with all genealogical research it represents my current knowledge and as such will contain errors and omissions which will be corrected over time through further research and information obtained from other genealogists and family members.  The sources for all information are provided to enable verification and you can further assist the accuracy of this site by contacting me when you find mistakes in these pages and sharing any new information on any of the families. You are free to use the information on this site in the knowledge of the above, however I would appreciate acknowledgement by citing this site as the source of the information.
