My modus operandi

Lets me be very clear on one thing. I am not a genealogist. I am not a researcher. I am an aggregator.

Although this potentially will and has indeed already upset some relatives, while I respect privacy issues, you can see where I am coming from by reading about this issue on the Family Tree Page. Everyone will be better informed if they take a twenty-first century view. In my view!

“Never fall in love with an idea. They're whores: if the one you're with isn't doing the job, there's always, always, always another.” - Chipp Kidd

I am the other idea. I hope you'll grasp but not fall in love with my idea in building this site now that you have read this far.

Never lose sight of your ancestors

If you shake your family tree, watch for the nuts to fall.

There have been many nuts to fall off my tree. Some of the reasons have caused outrageous merriment for the Webmaster. Some have been serious. Some have been outright rude. It's the name of the game.

  • 1. Your name can be removed.
  • 2. Here's how it's done:
  • ---Submit your request.
  • ---The Webmaster makes the alteration.
  • ---Updates are done regularly.
  • 3. There may be delays...

Here are the "top 10" ancestoral names.

How much time have you spent on your ancestery?

I am all about this mission. It seems clear to me that the Sellecks who came from Devon are my direct ancestors. It is also pretty clear that the Sellecks from Somerset tended to emigrate to the United States. I cannot find a link between the two. So "Are you a relative of Tom Selleck?" is often asked. The answer I give is that we probably are but I cannot prove it. Can you?

  • Selleck.
  • Johnston.
  • Allan.
  • Wardle.
  • Morris.
  • Robins.
  • Howden.
  • Pask.
  • Brown.
  • Down.

You may or may not be better off but you will be better informed. The experienced researcher is likely to have found common ancestors. This is the problem I want!
