The pedigree chart below shows from my brothers and myself through to children of the couples who are my Great, Great, Great Grandparents and are the base families of my family booklets.
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.

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;
