About

My father has been tracing the genealogy of my family, and related families, for about forty years. I took over a few years ago, and have started on my husband’s family.

Families

These are the families that are most common in my tree.

  • HALL
  • COATES
  • MERRITT
  • EASTER
  • CARTER
  • WELSBY
  • BASS
  • SCOTNEY
  • WITHER
  • FELIX
  • REUBY
  • WILLSHAW
  • BELCHER
  • SHELLEY
  • KNAPPER
  • GOLESWORTHY

 

Places

My father’s family was from Suffolk, and moved to London. My mother was from Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, her family were originally from the Cheshire/Staffordshire border. One branch emigrated to Utah, as Mormon Pioneers.

My husband’s immediate family were from London. His father’s family originally came from Cork in Ireland. His mother’s family were from Devon.

Software

My OS is Ubuntu (Linux) so I’m using GRAMPS – you will find plenty of genealogy help as well as help for the software on their website and mailing list.
