Welcome to my Family History pages

I've been researching my Family History off and on for the the last twenty years. It all started when my father inherited some family portraits, including one of George Foote, my great-great-great- grandfather (shown on the right). This got me hooked on researching my family history ... and I've been at it ever since. In 1996, I set up the first version of this web site, which has helped me make contact with distant cousins I never knew I had all over the world.

The web site is divided into five main sections listed in the panel on the left. Guernsey where I was born and grew up, and where most of my family still live. Devon where my Foote ancestors came from before they moved to Guernsey in the early years of the 19th century. Wales where my paternal grandmother's family originates. Surnames lists the names of main families I am researching, and Themes lists the details of some of the other areas of research that my interest in family history has led me to. Behind this there is a mass of details - for example, where you see a tree symbol (as pictured) on the left hand side - clicking it will take you to a detailed family tree for that family.

You can either browse using these links, or use the search engine to search the site for any specific families that you are interested in. I do intend to continue updating this site, as my research progresses and new discoveries come to light, so please visit on a regular basis.

The main purpose of this site is to make contact with others who share a family link or research interest - so if you find something of interest, please get in touch using the Contact button on the left.
