    Linden, it's a superb website, and obviously a great deal of hard work and attention to detail went into it. Just one request: that you publish the entire tree in one piece, as Alan did previously. For people trying to sort out who was who, it's the only way to make simple comparisons and eliminations or matches. The Ts were overall such a clan that one finds the same given names in many families, and they were much less geographically mobile than most other families, so that sorting them out is not easy! Hope you'll be able to make the addition.

      Hi Caroline,
      Many thanks for your kind words. The Family Tree is still here, in Background ( I'm in the process of entering all the information into a database so that's it's not just a flat file but something that can be linked into the detail pages of the site. It's an ongoing project!
      Cheers, Linden
