Welcome to my Family History and personal website. I have been collecting information about ancestors since the early 1970's, and have had a web presence since the early 1990's. My extensive family history is contained in separate on-line pages, managed by TNG software. Read about TNG here, an excellent on-line package. Go to the family history (TNG) home page here. My family history is constantly being updated as I research and discover new information. New pages are regularly added as time permits.
Most people arrive here after searching for one of their ancestors, and/or following a link to this page. My personal pages might help explain other life connections we may have, and there is more on my story on these pages, I live in Adelaide, Australia, and my web hosting is in the U.S.
This web site contains some forty five years of research and information accumulation, and celebrates twenty five years of my web presence. You are free to use my information (with acknowledgement please), but note that details of living people, and many of my sources, are not publicly available here. Family members may request a log-in ID to see some additional hidden details.
This column provides information about the main menu, above, that you can use to move around this website.
Family History pages - I am currently trying to get TNG to operate using this Joomla web site to login (or not, as the user chooses). This site is the live test site at present. Click the menu link to find out more. Access my family history research here, all managed by the wonderful TNG web-based program.
The Country (Jan) Squire - this link provides a potted history of my life, past and current interests, skills and experience. There is a drop down sub-menu, or just select 'this is Jan' from the resulting page.
Records Archive - the start point for access to many South Australian resources, which I use as a means to develop my Joomla skills, and do not hold copyright (though I do own copyright to the modified datasets, the presentation of the data, and the coding which is used). From here there will also be access to my my research documentation, images and original documents. The link is password protected, but access is available to learn how the search function works, and the coding is available to those knowledgeable in Joomla.
Being a Genealogist - I am mainly writing this to consolidate my notes from my studies and experience. It is a balance of interpreting my study course without infringing any copyright, and expressing my own views on a range of topics.
Rev Julian E TENISON WOODS, Misionary Priest.
I have taken on a project to get all the published works of Rev TENISON WOODS onto the internet, and accessible. As well as being a Catholic Missionary priest, he was a scientist, naturalist and geologist. I am hoping that the Mt Gambier History Group will take these pages once I have completed my work, and you can find them on the internet here - http://mountgambierhistorygroup.weebly.com. I have started a new page on 'Weebly' for all the articles, being added once they have been fully proof-read for accuracy.
