There are two main ways in which family tree information is displayed: 1 - Dynamic, and 2 - Static. The difference between the two formats is outlined below and it is strongly suggested that you read about them before accessing the information.



This shows the immediate family of an individual – his/her parents, siblings, spouse/s and children. All the people shown on the page are in fact live links, so clicking on them will bring them to the prime position (in the lower left-hand corner of the page), and make them the individual of focus.

The only slight departure from this rule concerns spouses. If the focussed individual has been married more than once, his/her other spouses are shown under the tile ‘marriages’ (bottom-centre of the page). Clicking on the name of the spouse will make him/her the individual of focus, but clicking on the icon to the right of the spouse will make them the spouse of focus and show their children.

The Dynamic Tree contains the most up to date genealogical information as it is drawn directly from the database.

These are the more traditional form of displaying genealogical information. There are a variety of static trees that can be downloaded.

Just click on one of the links below to download a file in pdf format.

Static trees are good for gaining a wider perspective and seeing different generations. A lot more information is displayed at one time. However the information is updated less regularly than in the dynamic tree (please see the ‘update’ date which should appear under the title of the tree).

Should you wish to print a tree, please check how large the image is as some cover many pages.
