Welcome to the Close Ancestry Trees

So, here we are at the full set of trees, which contain all the available information we currently have; if it isn't here then we haven't found it yet.

We try to add new things on a regular basis but, to be honest, every time we scratch a surface it seems to turn into a massive exercise which can take months (or even years) to bottom out. So, please bear with us, we will get there eventually. Just so's you know, the last update was on April 15, 2019.

If you have anything to contribute, correct, or comment on then please get in touch at stuff@closeancestry.com. All contributions are welcome, and we always give credit to anyone who adds something to the Close story, which currently spans from 1500 to 2018.

With 16,372 people, 4,551 families, 9,221 sources, and 63,416 image references currently sat in our database, you'll appreciate the amount of work that has gone into this over the years. We don't charge for any of this, even though it costs a fair amout to keep it all running. Instead, we rely on donations to the cause. So, if you find anything of interest or use here, and you feel inclined to pass a few quid in our direction, we'll be very happy to receive it.
