I have now transferred all of the family trees from my old site. Each clan and family is now a separate family tree, though the smaller families are still grouped into a couple of Descendant Reports.
This includes breaking down the Shocklach and Turton clans, which originally contained multiple unconnected families. Shocklach is now 2 clans and two additional families, whilst there is one reduced Turton clan (though it is a Bolton clan with no association with Turton), and two Turton families.
The Clans page now has a consistent format to describe each clan/family with links to the tree, descendant report and chart. I’ve also discovered a new (to me) feature of the on-line trees which allows you to see 5 generations of ancestors for anyone in the tree at the click of a button on a little tree symbol. I’ve also put an ‘relevant’ picture on the introductory page of each tree.
If you want to find someone in the trees but are unsure of their clan then your starting point is the Combined Index. This lists everyone in the various trees and gives their dates of birth, baptism, and death. It also has their place of birth and clan. The individual trees also have an index but this only has name, and dates of birth and death (not an option I can change).
I’ve tried all the links and they seem to work. Please have a play, and let me know if there are any problems. I just have the Papers page to finish off and then I will be able to get back to creating new content. I’m also aware the next newsletter is overdue, but I am holding off until I have my Big Y results.
