=================================================================================

This tree is provided to family historians without prejudice. I have constructed most of my family trees using the data I have available, and in a few cases it is estimated as the best fit from available choices. In this tree, several of the links are yet to be proved, so any help that you can give to confirm any line would be appreciated by me and others searching in this family. More modern families also need your inputs, because as I can link modern families to each other, and thus it enables a focus on their common ancestry. The memories of one branch may not be complete, but yet may fill in gaps of another branch. Only by a concerted effort can we really define the true lineage. Help me to help you by sharing what you have. Many additional details have been provided by other researchers and I have included the contributor's email addresses within the file next to their families. (NOTE- their addresses have been corrupted on purpose to avoid spamming)

My thanks to you all. - Ken STEWART < kjstew@iinet.net.au > 10 Oct 2002

LINKS

You can move up and down through generations by clicking on the hyperlinks. Use spouses to go down generations and parents to go back to earlier generations. Bold links usually go to different family files

ABBREVIATIONS USED

Other than the standard abbreviations and Chapman County codes I also use

(OPR-) to show I extracted the data myself from the Kilsyth registers on microfilm, or have been given the full details..

(IGI reg) to designate source of IGI materials with "registers" source codes

(IGI) to show IGI materials with another source (not always reliable)

"c" before year date to show an estimated year

"cc" before year date to show I have used the spouse's date data as a rough guide
