Family Tree


The Mather Family Tree

I first started working on the web-based version of the Mather family tree in about 2003.  This was initially based on a tree drawn up during two Mather family reunions held at Llandudno, North Wales.  However, over the past few years with many evenings searching computer indexes, the tree has grown many more generations back in time and now exceeds well over 1000 members.

The "FULL" Tree

The complete family tree is maintained using GenoPro software which allows graphical presentation of the different family trees, together with cross-referenced details, timelines, pictures, locations, occupations, references, and much more.  This is an excellent package which I would recommend.  If you are only interested in viewing my family tree you will need to download Adobe's SVG viewer to view the high quality graphical tree structure, navigate around the family members, and view individual and family details more easily.

The Dittmer Family Tree

The Dittmer family were added to the tree in 2007, together with a large collection of old photographs, scanned documents and other images.  The tree became to big to host on this NTL website (which is limited to 55MB), so is now available from GenoPro who provide a free hosting service to users of their software.

Prem Clark's (nee Unadkat) Family Tree

I've been trying to get Prem, my partner, interested in some of my hobbies.  Since her family is spread around the globe, making a start on her family tree seems like a good idea.  If you are related to this Unadkat family tree, then please get in touch and let me know where you fit in.

Family Tree Research

Much of the family tree research can be done at home using several sources of information:

This provides an on-line index of the 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881, 1891 and 1901 census records of great Britain.  Form these records it is usually possible to determine the family relationships (e.g. Head, Wife, Son, Daughter, etc), marital status (e.g. Single, Married, Widowed), address and occupation.

There is a subscription required to use this service, so I tend to subscribe for just one or two months during the winter and have a blitz search of everything!  I have saved the scans of most of the census records relevant to my family, which I am happy to share with other family members.

This provides a comprehensive index of the parish records of christenings, marriages and deaths in the UK and overseas.

This provides a near complete index or births, marriages and deaths from Sep-1837 to the early 1900's.  It is usually only possible to shortlist the marriage partner to two or three possible matches.  The event is only indexed in quarter years (March, June, Sept and Dec) and actual dates are not given.

These county indexes are not as complete as freeBMD, and only give the year of birth, marriage or death.  However, the information is sometimes better than freeBMD, as actual places of Birth, Marriage or Death are recorded, and the marriage normally included the church and wife's maiden name.
