News - Apologies but I have temporarily disabled the 'Contact Me' form. I have been getting too many automated spam posts to it.
Update - I tried re-activating the contact form in November 2022, but I immediately received 40+ junk messages a day. Please Email me any questions/info.

News - I have another part of this site (Family History Village). There is more info there, including my searchable databases (approval for a login is required), my genealogy study notes, and other miscellaneous stuff. Have a look if interested . . .

Welcome - most people arrive here after searching for one of their ancestors. The link for 'First time users' might provide help if you need it. The search boxes (top left) are worth trying to see if we have common ancestors. The 'About me' page might help explain other life connections we may have. I live in Adelaide Australia, and my web hosting is in the U.S.
