Instructions for using this Database

This is a frames-oriented genealogy web site database. Depending on the type of browser that you are using, you may be able to right-click in this frame, and choose back-frame or forward-frame, you may have navigation menu items similarly named, or you may be able to use your normal Forward and Back buttons to navigate around this site. In any case, you will be able to use the links provided in the frame panes that you see.

The vertical frame border between this pane and the index pane can be used for re-sizing. Grab it with your mouse pointer and you will find that you can resize the panes by dragging the border left and right. Additionally, you may grab the frame border above this frame and drag it up and down, perhaps to better view the family data pages.

The pane on the left is used to seek directly a person or family of interest. You may scroll up and down using the scroll bar. The links you will see in this pane and in the tables will help you to navigate through my family tree. There is both an Individual Index and a Family Index available for consultation. You can switch between them by using the links at the top and bottom of the lists.The index is ordered by SURNAME, Birth Date and then First Name.

The tables that you will see in this frame contain information about the persons in this genealogical database. The tables are organized on a family basis. For each family you will generally see the Primary Individual, then the Spouse and then the Family information, very much like a Family Group Sheet. For the Primary Individual and the Spouse there is event date and place information, as well as identification of parents, with their birth data. Family information displayed includes birth date and the names of children, as well as other family event information.

In compiling this database, I chose to include the person events of baptism, christening, marriage and naturalization in this database.

The buttons in the upper left corner will always allow you to go directly to the home page (Back to Home Page), to this page (Instructions), or to start a new search of this database (Start Over).

I have included all of those individuals who are in my current family tree.You can download the data in GEDCOM form from my Downloads Page.
