Navigation and Overview of Website

This website provides both an ancestor's view (ie looking up) and a descendant's view (ie looking down from the top of the branch) of our sons' genealogy. 

The views are linked by the Ancestors Overview page.  This is the key page of the site and can also be reached by the button. 

All pages will take you home by the     button.   Within a group of pages the standard Start , Forward , Backward and End  buttons also apply.   


A name index is provided for each person descended from a person at the top of the tree, for each surname.  These indexes which list all known people who are descended from the highest person in the tree are contained in the Descendants Lists. This Descendants List page provides a link for each person at the top of the tree providing the list of names for each family line.  Within a list a hyper-linked name will take you to more information or another linked line. 

An Alphabetic Surname List allows you to find any person in this site.  Some surnames are contained in a number of different descendant name lists.  You need to select one of these names of a top of the tree person descendant list and then look again for the surname in that list.  If you cannot find the person, and more than one top of the line person was listed, select the next top of the line person and look in their list.

An overview of some families is given on the Family Overview page and the ancestors that migrated to Australia are included in the Migrants to Australia page.

The children of a family, of our ancestors are only included in one surname line and that is identified under that married couple. Our sons' ancestors have been given a background colour consistent with the Ancestors Overview page. This colour indicates that they are an ancestor and what was their country of birth.  Notes are included for many people and are intended to give some reference material and comentary.
