…………………………….

The following research was done in the hope it will give our children and their children..a sense of belonging to the past as they proceed to live in the present.

I have over 70 100-page clear files – one for each ancestor. I have red files for my paternal side, blue ones for my maternal. Yellow for Derek’s maternal and green for his paternal. Many of them have sufficient material to print a book

– but time is always the essence!!

Everything in my office relevant to those familes are colour coded as to the files, in that way I can know immediately what belongs to which family.

I have used the services of a wonderful genealogist to help me delve into particular families that I have not had time for.

The enclosed charts show only the latter generations.
