About The Wiltshire Ancestral Trail
Please sign in to see more.
Greetings relatives distant and close. 

Firstly let me dispel any misconception that this site is concentrated on the County  of Wiltshire. Wiltshire is our family name. However we have not concentrated on that  name but are following up as far as possible all ancestors and their descendents of  Oliver John Marsh our grandchild. The main ancestral names are Gibbins, Jukes, Marsh,  Mumford, Prosser, Webber and Wiltshire although other names have of course married  into the tree. Geographically we have found that our researches have been  concentrated in and around Bristol, Wolverhampton, various Dorset villages and  London. We have discovered a direct link to King John and therefore to most of the  British Royal family. Not close to say the least but it is there.

We have taken the decision not to show the names of living people. We know that this  distracts from the initial look of the site and can cause navigational difficulties  but want people to feel safe in providing us with information. However this has  proved to be one of the construction difficulties as while the site automatically  assumes anyone over 100 to be open it appears to be treating those between 200 and  300 to be living by default. We are rectifying this as we identify a problem. If you  have a query about a relative in this time range please email us and we will ensure  that the information is made open.

Where information has been obtained from other people's trees we are in the process  of seeing that this is acknowledged in the notes space of the relevant person. If you  spot information that needs an acknowledgement please let us know. On the other hand  if you would prefer not to be named also please alert us accordingly. Please note  that the acknowledgements bypass the automatic living person over-ride.

Where we have BMD certificates these will be acknowledged in the notes space. Some  but not necessarily all will be posted to the site. If you wish to see a certificate  that is identified but not shown email us and we will feature it on the site at least  temporarily. We would be grateful for any certificates shared with us.

For those within the relevant age range the censuses for 1851 to 1901 have been  checked and we are currently looking at the 1911 census. Censuses will not be posted  to the site but we are undertaking a rolling programme of cutting/pasting transcripts  of the censuses into the notes spaces. 
 Unfortunately on pasting corruptions occur - spacings are removed and ?s appear  instead of other symbols. These and any grammatical errors will be corrected as soon  as possible. If it appears we have misidentified a census or you have traced a census  of which we do not appear to be aware please let us know as soon as possible.

There are several photograph albums but I would particularly draw attention to the  celebrations album. The intention here is in part to show groups of people where we  are seeking identification of some of the attendees. Any help in such identifications  would be gratefully accepted. This of course also applies to the large groups in the  wedding albums. I am sure everyone has gone through old photograph albums and not had  a clue as to the identity of some of the faces that peer out. We will be featuring  some of our mystery relatives in the identity parade album. No prizes for correct  answers merely the satisfaction of a puzzle solved. We would be delighted to received  scans of any relatives to add to the tree.
