Welcome  . . .

My tree is rooted amongst the downs that enclose Ventnor on the Isle of Wight; as both sets of my grandparents met, married, and lived in Ventnor ... or more specifically 'Up Shute' ...

When I first started looking at my family tree, around 1977 to 1980, I had no idea that I would be able to get to this point, census returns looked like scary things, and finding photos of ALL my great-grandparents, well, you must be joking! Yet, here I am, madly dashing off on weird and wonderful tangents.
I have set up this website with an aim to archive and share research concerning my ancestors, and so preserving it for future generations. I use this website to jot down things that I get excited about, to explore patterns and jigsaws in my research ... and so it is in a constant state of evolution.

*NB: Whilst every care has been taken with the accuracy of information on this website, in genealogy it is notoriously easy to trundle off down the wrong path. Always check primary sources. I try very hard to acknowledge all my sources, particularly so that those interested can go back to that source. If I have ommitted, or over enthusiatically quoted where I should not have, I apologise. Please advise me so that I can rectify any problems.
