Many years ago, when I first started looking at our family history, I divided my family and my husband's, into 16 major groups: one for each of our great-grand parents' surnames (see below).    I am now in the process of adding one page for each family within each of the 16 grooups (parents and children). It is a big task!

I would be delighted to hear from you with any comments, further information, photographs, family trees, queries, background details, or simply just because we have a common interest in family history. I am also happy to provide full details of sources upon request.

The 16 family groups are as follows:
