Greatrix-Thacker Family Tree Website
This website is an online reference for the family tree of my own
and my husband’s families. It is a work in progress with many links, lives and questions still to be discovered and answered.
I joined Ancestry.com and got the basic starts and documents from there but soon realised it was so easy to follow false hints on there and go completely off track if you didn’t triple check the information, and I really wanted to ensure we were following the true lines (as much as anyone can ever be sure!) This was particularly crucial when I found ancestors that were gypsies/travellers and the complexities that come with that. There is also a strong military background in my husband’s family and a link to Ireland in my own. I also have Scottish DNA which I’m still trying to find! Just to confuse matters my husband and my own trees are linked though our 4th great grandparents!
The site is, as said, a continual work in
progress and I hope to add many more features over the weeks, months and years to come. I hope anyone who has come
across it whilst searching their own family tree will be able to gain some
information from what I have collected so far and if you can help with any of
the questions you come across within the site, please do get in touch with me
at firstname.lastname@example.org, and if we happen to share any part of our
ancestry we’d love to hear from you!
To view the list of people in our tree click on
the ‘People’ option on the menu above. You can then view individual records
by clicking on their unique ID numbers to the left of their name.
Thank you & enjoy.
to recent technical issues with the former software I used to create the site
I have to do a redesign on every page (over 3000!) so please bear with me
during the transition period. Some pages will display as the old design, but
all links should work and the site should remain
functional. Please let me know if you have major issues whilst we are
updating the pages**
