This is a work in progress and subject to change. If you know of additions/corrections that should be made, please contact me. I'm trying very hard to document as much as possible and to be as accurate as possible but I'm a human being capable of making mistakes. Therefore I disclaim any responsibility for inadvertent mistakes. I strongly suggest that if you find connections here to your own lines, that you doublecheck that the data is correct. You are ultimately responsible for ensuring the accuracy of any data that you use.
I would like to thank my cousin, Donna Hamm (Mason) who has allowed me to link to her pages and information on our family. She has also provided me with lots and lots of support and encouragement!!
I would also like to thank Ros Davies, Norm Ruddock, Raymond Kelly, Patrick McKenney, Laurie Fowers and Ella Patterson for their suggestions, ideas, information, weblinks, pictures and TIME ... Thank You!
The ancestry report uses 'Ahnentafel' numbering. This means that the numbers for a person's parents will be twice as large as that person's number. For example, if a woman's number is 15, her father will be number 30, and her mother will be 31. Her child will be number 7.
