As explained elsewhere, this site was intended as a way of allowing some old family documents in my possession to be shared more widely among family members but the inclusion of the Hotten family tree which was sent to my
aunt Winifred in 1981 was the catalyst for considerable expansion.
Although the basis for the Hotten section of the website is the research by Elizabeth Hotten I have also received a great deal of help from three other ladies: they are
Hazel Ingram (née Bowen) and
Joan Bruce (née Simpson).
Malcolm Bell also made significant contributions.
Additional information has also been gathered from various on-line resources, many from the commercial genealogy websites but also from a few privately maintained sites. These are acknowledged on appropriate pages.
A full list of contributors is also available.
