My Web Site now contains information for my Paternal Genealogy of JACKSON, BULL, TIPPER & HOLLOWAY families and my Maternal Irish Genealogy of HEALY & LENANE families, also that of my wife, Pauline (nee Henderson), whose Scottish ancestral research has posed some interesting problems for me both North & South of the Border and between the Counties of Lancashire & Yorkshire.
This site has been created in order that members of my family & fellow researchers can see the results of some 33 years of researching our family names, their places of residence and place in the community. The details have been gathered from documents, photographs, personal memories and items in the Public Domain. The information that has been brought together has been sourced, where possible, but not all that has been collated is actually detailed on this web site. There are many Collateral lines included, not all are related to me, but I have recorded them as they may be connected, one day!
My '100 year Rule! "
The Web-Site that you see here is extracted from my Family History database which contains records and details about >33,000 people. In order to 'protect' Living People' I have excluded certain records from this database by applying the following Rules:
i. I exclude ALL records about Persons who are known to be Living;
ii. I include details about people who were born over a hundred years ago but whose information is recorded in the last 100 years;
iii. I exclude ALL records for people who were born after 31st December 1912, this date is updated annually on the 31st December.
[At the request of one researcher I have excluded 20C details of a branch of the family whose details might be expected to be included on this Site.]
How other Date information is derived
The following terms are sometimes used for information is not known:
c -- Circa -- indicates ± 5 years; say -- date based on some other event date; est -- date estimated from some other event date;
aft -- after a date; bef -- before a date; bet -- date between date.
In Marriage records where ages are not known, I assume the following - A husband will be older than his wife by 5 years.
Generations have been assumed - for calculation purposes only - to be 25 years.
