My Genealogy Links

My genealogy blog is Hayes and Greene Family History, which also gives more information about families we are researching.

We also have a Family History Wiki, which we hope will become a cooperative family history research site, with members of the family contributing information, anecdotes, queries, links and so on.

You can also look at my personal links page, which links to web pages dealing with some of my other interests.

I also have a page at the Orkut Social Network, which I originally intended to use for family history contacts, but this one seems better. Nevertheless, and family members who are interested are welcome to link to me there too.

Ellwood family of Cumbria

Posted on July 12, 2011 at 6:48pm 0 Comments

We have started an…


Calling Bagot researchers

Posted on October 31, 2010 at 6:35pm 0 Comments

In the past few weeks I've had quite a lot of correspondence with people researching the Bagot family, and we've had a fruitful exchange of information.

As a result of this, and to facilitate further exchanges, we've set up a Bagot family forum on YahooGroups, and invite other Bagot researchers to join us…

Isle of Axholme genealogy

Posted on June 10, 2010 at 10:27am 0 Comments

If you have Ancestors from the Isle of Axholme (north-west Lincolnshire in England), a very good site is Axholme Ancestry. There's more about it here.

The site actually covers a bit more than the Isle of Axholme itself, and includes south-east Yorkshire and north Lincolnshire as well -- Humberside, in fact. So if you have any ancestors or other relatives… Continue

Devantier family updates

I've just updated information about the Devantier family on my main family history blog.

Torben Devantie, who has the biggest collection of Davantier family information, recently changed the address of his site. There are also Devantier family groups on Facebook and Orkut.

Hey Steve, Ann Saundercock and Richard Burden are my Great x4 Grandparents. They were born around 1780 and married in 1809 in Laneast Cornwall. They had a son Stephen who married Elizabeth Horrill. Her parents were John Horrill and Anne Sandercock also my Great x4 Grandparents. I believe they come from Egloskerry Cornwall

A lot of Cottams - including mine - came from Croston in Lanashire, not a million miles from Salford. Do you have any more background on JB?
