Welcome to Peter’s Family History Notes

We usually give out handouts when we give a presentation but it would be much easier to click on a link on the screen than type in an often complicated web address. The notes for presentations are frequently updated. This website will ensure that you are getting the updated version!

We would also like to use this site to share news and thoughts on Family History. We are very interested in technology and software for Family History – topics which can also be hard to keep up with – so we may share information as we learn about new things.

Why Family History? Why not Genealogy? To me genealogy is all about the names, and dates, about pedigree charts and family group sheets. Family History to me implies something broader than genealogy. It means putting the flesh on the bones, gathering stories, pictures and personal histories. Family History to me is genealogy plus much more.

We look forward to your comments and suggestions for topics. You can even submit information to share with others. Thank you for joining in the fascinating journey to learn and link ourselves with our ancestors.
