Introduction
 
 

I have been researching my own family history for about 10 years and have created 77 ancestral charts which can be accessed below. The charts are grouped by my main ancestral surnames — CASH, FLEURY, DABBS, GOULD etc.

Most of the information on my charts has come from records which I have seen myself, and I can provide for anyone who asks all the record references on which each chart is based. Some of the information has come from other related people with whom I have been in contact along the way. Where this has happened I have annotated the charts accordingly to give credit to the other researchers. I have not included on my charts any person born after 1900 in order not to impinge on the privacy of living persons.

Most of my information has come from GRO indexes, BMD certificates, UK census records, and parish records.

For those new to this, GRO indexes are the alphabetic lists of civil registrations of births, marriages and deaths which are compiled each quarter from information from all English and Welsh register offices. Civil registrations began in the UK in the third quarter of 1837. The GRO indexes can be looked up in libraries or county record offices, or online.

BMD certificates are paper documents provided when a civil registration of a birth, marriage or death is recorded by a registrar. Copies of the certificates can be ordered online costing £9.25 each and come through the post. Before ordering a certificate, the event must be identified in the GRO indexes in order to obtain the correct reference information required to order the certificate. I have got about 200 certificates, mostly of relatives in my direct line, and mostly purchased by myself, but some obtained as copies from other researchers. Where the © symbol appears on a chart against an event, I have a copy of the BMD certificate. For all my certificates I have created transcripts which can be accessed below.

The first full UK census where the names of every person was written down was in 1841. Under the hundred-year rule, the latest census available to the public is the one taken in 1911. Censuses can be looked up in libraries or county record offices, and are available online.

Parish records can go back a long way, but the information recorded for each event (baptism, marriage or burial) gets more scant the further back in time you go. When I started doing research, my main source for parish records was the database of the Mormon Church which was, and still is, available free online. But I also purchased my own copies of parish records for parishes of particular interest (mostly villages in Norfolk and Suffolk) on microfiche, and bought a fiche-reader for use at home. Since then many more parish records have become available online. I have prepared partial transcripts from some of my sets of microfiche which can be accessed from links further down this page.

Most of my own ancestral lines peter out around the late 1700s. Research based purely on parish records (prior to 1837) has to be taken with a degree of scepticism. With parish records of marriages (or banns), the names of the parents of the bride and groom were not normally recorded. This means that when tracing backwards, the vital link with the previous generation may depend on guesswork or assumptions. People with their own inherited written records such as family bible inscriptions, or with famous ancestors who have left their mark, can be more certain that their findings are correct. I had nothing like that to go on. If anyone spots a mistake or omission in a chart please do contact me — I want to make the charts as accurate as possible and am very grateful for extra information.

Below are some links which I have found useful:

FreeBMD free website for searching the GRO indexes.

GRO website for ordering BMD certificates.

Ancestry website (UK branch) with a huge amount of data for looking at GRO indexes, UK censuses, parish records, and more. Some looking-up is free but you have to pay for full access. Although expensive, the annual subscription is better value than paying for records piecemeal.

IGI free website for LDS databases of parish records for the UK and many other countries. LDS stands for Latter-day Saints — short for Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints or Mormon Church. IGI stands for International Genealogical Index which brings all LDS sources together into a single search screen.

SmartDraw website for buying the drawing package I used to create my charts. N.B. I created the charts manually — not using the SmartDraw family history templates, nor an automatic link to my family history database. SmartDraw is expensive to buy but I found it easy to use after a time.

PrimoPDF website from which I downloaded the free program to generate the Adobe pdf versions of my charts from the SmartDraw files.

Adobe Reader website from which the Adobe Reader program (for displaying pdf files) can be downloaded free if you have not already got it.

The charts, name indexes, and BMD transcripts
 
 

Two versions of each chart are available - a plain image (gif) version and an Adobe (pdf) version. With the Adobe charts you can zoom in to enlarge the image without the text becoming blurry. You will need to zoom to about 75% to make the print readable on the screen. Try pressing CTRL+ ("control plus") for a quick way of zooming in. On my charts, square brackets enclose a [maiden surname].

If you find the Adobe pdf charts do not display inside a browser tab,
then you may need to download the Adobe Reader (link above).
