Adding Information

Descendants of my grandparents or great grandparents who want to add information can do so in a number of ways.

Contact me and I will add things for you.

For deceased people in other branches which I have not added to WeRelate, I do not know about them. If you need assistance I will help you add them to WeRelate.

For the living, there is a good chance that they are already recorded but not on WeRelate because they are alive. In the sections below there are 2 links for my grandparents and great grandparents, one is to their WeRelate page and the other is to their page on Wikitree which allows living people but I have made them all private and you will have to contact me via that site to get access to the relevant profiles.

Sixth generation Ancestors

While I know the names and some details for the people at my sixth generation ancestors. The following names are the people at this generation which are in my wishlist for source documents that I would like to access or obtain copies of in the hope that they may provide at least one further piece of information in relation to either their lives or information on their parents. All of the names of my great, great, great grandparents can be seen below in the seventh generation pedigree chart.

Antoine Scherno and Madeleine Carabin were both likely married to someone else and hopefully I can uncover who Antoine's parents were.

John Henderson and Isabella Campbell's marriage certificate should hopefully reveal the names of John's parents.

John Williams and Eliza Harries marriage certificate may reveal further information in relation to Eliza's mother and maybe even some information on her father.

Patrick O'Sullivan and Ann O'Connell's marriage certificate may reveal some further information, however at the moment I do not think that it will reveal much more information.

Johan Johansen and Berith Andersdr may get further information by accessing records for Lars Johnson.

Henry Price and Catherine Byrne may provide further information on both Henry and Catherine's parents.

Alexander McDougall and Christina Couper's marriage certificate may confirm Alexander's parents and may provide information on Christina's mother.

The Seventh Generation

Wondering about family history and gathering information since the late 1980's, I have found each little bit of new information is exciting as it helps build a stronger picture of the people and their families. The piece of information that provided me with a lot of incentive to find out more was a copy of an O'Sullivan descendant list compiled by Peter Crawford, which included Patrick O'Sullivan and John Connell.

For myself at this time, they were the only two known ancestors of a potential 64 Great, great, great, great grandparents. I still do not the names of all the seventh generation in my pedigree chart and for many all I do know is their name, however I now know of 52 from the potential 64.

As new family history searches made new contacts with extended family members and exposed more information I started to find out a lot about our ancestors, including some as far back as 15 generations. While compiling information and thinking about putting it all into a book format I had to decide where to limit the focus of my research. The seventh generation became an obvious choice because;

  • I like the seventh generation principle.
  • Most of the historical records that make family history research easier were implemented throughout the UK, parts of Europe and elsewhere during the early 1800's. (About the time of my sixth and seventh generation).
  • When looking at a pedigree chart and the associated families this is where the gaps in my research are considerable.
  • This appears to be the furthest generation back in my family that arrived in Australia with Joseph Collins and Margaret Nevin.

Beyond The Seventh Generation

Lehrer

Almost every branch of the Lehrer line goes back beyond the seventh generation with quite a lot going to the twelfth and some to the thirteenth generation, but by the time of the fourteenth generation there are only four known families, two of which appear multiple times.

Borrill

  • James Borrill has had a number of potential couples proposed as his parents, however his wife, Martha Hobson has information known back another five generations.
  • Henry Hubach goes onto the tenth generation, from his parents Henry Hubach and Phoebe to his paternal great grandparents.

O'Sullivan

Johnson

  • Currently any information available is questionable as we go beyond the seventh generation via the Johnson line. The most likely parents of Robert McDougall are Allan McDougall and Agnes Alexander
