Welcome to the Global Family Project. This information is the culmination of a collaboration that started between Paul Barfoot, Chris McKenzie and Les Gover and has grown ever since.

After finding that our family trees were linked we agreed to pool our collective knowledge in order to provide a resource that will hopefully be more useful to ourselves and other genealogists than each of our individual family trees.

Details are published only for those persons known, or assumed, to be deceased, in line with common policy among genealogists publishing their data to the Web. In this way we will hopefully not upset anyone who has been kind enough to let us use information that they have uncovered. A big thank you to all who have assisted us so far.

If you do find someone on this site that you are connected to then, firstly, try and make contact directly with the contributor who has added that person to this site. This can be done by clicking on the 'Contact Us' link on the left and then seeing which person contributed the surname that you are interested in. If you cannot find the contributor directly leave a message on the Message Board. As a last resort, contact the web site administrator and your e-mail will be forwarded to the contributor concerned.

Although every measure is taken to ensure the accuracy of the information published on this web site errors are bound to occur. The administrator would also like to make it clear that this site is not the work of one person but instead a collaborative effort by a number of individuals around the world. If you come across any mistakes, or if you feel that you should be recognised as the source of any of the information contained here, the first point of contact is once again the web site administrator.

New functionality added! Place names can now be clicked on to open a small Google Maps window showing the location of the events in our ancestors' lives.
