One of my “other” passions is genealogy .. tracing family histories back into the midsts of time.
My family has a strong Scottish line, rooted in Aberdeenshire, as well as contributions from the North of England.
A basic family tree, that is very much out of date, can be found here
there is also an Ancestry tree, with DNA tests to add more information from my chromosomal heritage.
I have yet to unravel my missing Yorkshire genetics from the 1800s, around the village of Hemsworth – it greives a genealogists heart to be missing a GGGranfather and GGGGranfather with all his ancestry to find.
Some of my major family names are : Ambler, Ashworth, Brown, Crossland, Hampson, Hunter, Lowe, Mair, Moss, Pulman, Senior, Sumner, Tomlinson, Walker,
there are also others in the tree : Blackbourn, Bowis, Lister,Maltby, Palin, Parish, Stewart, Weir, Yabbicom,
