Please help us. This is a free site which now contains the details of thousands of people, and thousands of images.

Putting aside the number of hours of work involved in producing it, it costs money to pay for the web hosting and keep the site on-line. If you have found the information here useful, then please help us out by donating a few pounds towards the upkeep. Anything you can spare will go towards keeping the site free to use … we do not do this to make money.

If everyone who visited the site was prepared to donate just £1, then that would be all it takes!

So, please use the Donate button wherever you see it for a quick and easy donation via PayPal. Donations can be made by debit card, credit card, or PayPal. Anything you can spare will be gratefully received.

And now for a bit of housekeeping

See the wood and the trees

We publish everything we have in our fabulous trees, so basically if you can’t find it, we don’t have it. With over 20,000 people, 5,000 families, 12,000 sources, and 69,000 image references currently sat in our database, you’ll appreciate the amount of work that has gone into this over the years.

You can see more in the Close Ancestry Trees.


We know that everyone in the world is after your hard-earned cash, but if you do feel a donation coming on as a result of your visit here, then please feel free to send it our way. It all goes towards the upkeep of the site, for which we charge absolutely nothing. So, please help us to keep the site free to use. Thanks.
