I started working on our family tree soon after my father died. He had left some basic information about his side of the family.
Due to the fact that his cousin Ralph had died intestate and my father had become administrator of his estate, when my father died I became Ralph's administrator by default, as executor of my father's will.
As Ralph had no living direct line relatives his cousins and their descendants were due to inherit. This meant that I had to establish who they all were.
This was done with the help of professional genealogists but it more than kickstarted the process, adding quite dramatically to the information available. I then joined some genealogical websites to do more research.
Margaret's side of the family was kick started by the fact that her father had done a lot of research and let me have all the information, to which I added.
Thus we have what is here. Like all genealogy a 'work in progress' but, hopefully one that's reasonably accurate.
