Coverage

This collection consists of a list of names and events from a very wide range of sources which have been collected by myself and others for the purposes of our own interest, and research. They do not represent complete extractions from any one source, nor complete coverage of all records which may be available for a particular place or surname.

Disclaimer

This collection consists of a list of names and events from a very wide range of sources which have been collected by myself and others for the purposes of our own interest, and research. They do not represent complete extractions from any one source, nor complete coverage of all records which may be available for a particular place [yes, it said this earlier too]

We very much hope that you find something of interest here. However, as with any transcript, or index, please use this data as a finding aid only, and NOT as a definitive source. Whilst we will have made every effort to transcribe accurately from original records, we do not claim to achieve 100% accuracy, nor can we promise to amend errors brought to our attention as and when they are reported. The onus is therefore on you to verify the information is an accurate reproduction of the original source.
