Primary surnames being researched are:
With all these trees, I'm keen to get more information, if you can send
me ged files to t. a. hogg @ qmul.ac.uk they'd be welcomed.
- Elderson - The story starts with a
coachman in Cambusnethan, Lanarkshire but they travel the world.
Among related names are Claydon, Gray, Lyle, Morgan, Parr, Powell,
Rowley, Upton, Welham, Wiffin,
- Joyce - also Ward and Orchard of and
around Ashby de la Zouch
- Sherard - Sherard of Tongue
- Hogg - from around Arbroath
A small mistake led me to trace 78 people with the surnames Claydon,
Weston, and Oxbrow before I found it. For anyne who is interested here
is the ged file. Oxbrow is
quite a rare name and anyone researching that name might be interested
in Valerie Stevenson's
site or Steve Oxbrow's
1911 Census - It is now possible to get
copies of returns for specific addreesses from. I thought I'd obtain
one and write a bit about what it tells me.
The family trees are generated using SeeGEDCOMX
which is an excellent program allowing easy editing and navigation of
your family tree. It stores data in ged files making data portable to
any other good family history program, though I have yet to find one
which is as easy to use.
