The first pedigree CHART has been posted. Charts for all families will be added in due course. These of course give but an overview of the family concerned. For biographies and photographs you will need to click on the icons to the left of the family description and navigate through the pages. Nevertheless, once you have viewed the charts you may know which pages you wish to access. Please don't forget to use the indices as well.
