A General Information
Point: Before you start to download and begin the research please
please remember that all the information contained herein is liable to
change. Genealogy is NOT an exact science. We have done our best to ensure
that it is as accurate as possible. However if new information comes to
light the relevant individual and family details will be changed!!
As discussed in the help page, it is
not our intention to make life too easy for everyone wanting to trace
their family, It makes the joy of success much more gratifying when you
have solved your own puzzles!
However, we do realise that we
designed these Family Branches and it would be ludicrous to expect
everyone to know their way around and to work out where and when their own
family fits into the big picture. Bearing this in mind it was thought
prudent to include copies of all the family trees for download. Please be
aware that these files are saved as Excel Spreadsheets, should you have
any difficulties in opening the files please contact us and we will try to
solve the problem by hook or by crook.
To obtain the relevant Family Tree,
right click the corresponding Family Branch button and click
"Save Target As", a separate window will open asking you to give
the location of where you would like to save it. Please remember where you
save it as believe it or not, sometimes its hard to remember once the
download is complete.
In any event there are ten family
Branches in total, however due to the number of family members it was
decided to breakdown some of the larger families into smaller sub-families
as is obvious when you look on the left hand border and view the extent of
Family Branch 8.
All the top line individuals are the
link to the previous family and all of them end up back on Family Branch
1, which as previously stated, is the main line Pitcairn Family. So for
example, when you view Family Branch 1, you will see "John Pitcairn
of Unstoun, died 1652" above his name on the Tree you will see a reference
to another Family Tree that of (Family Branch) F.B. 8 . This tells
you that if you want to look at the descendants of John Pitcairn, you will
need to go to F.B. 8 and follow his family through that line. The
same rule applies for working backwards through the families,
understanding that the top individual shown on the Tree refers back to
their originating family.
