|About Our Family
Thank you for visiting Our Family website. We appreciate your interest in family history. This website was started over ten years ago by our original webmaster Kellie Beale as a holding-place for information from family documents languishing in attics in New Zealand including a 300 year old book. He has stepped back and handed over to his sister Edie Beale who can now add any photos or information for you. There may be new marriages or grandchildren to list.
The GEDCOM format of TribalPages connects nearly 3000 individuals into a family tree. To find your family -
Type the Surname or Maiden name of any ancestor in the Search space top right in the black bar. Click Find next to it. From the list that appears, choose one that’s about the right date range and click on it. It will show the family page of that person. Anything in blue and underlined will take you to other links. Click on Back to go back at any time.
There are now a thousand ancestors listed from our initial connections. Visiting family members who request an invitation receive an automatic confirming email from tribalpages right away.
Lost relatives? We are happy to help look for them too. In recent years we have tracked down the Blairs (Scotland,) Kelly, Hicks (Devon) Cookes (Shropshire) Bateman (Worcs) and Simms in Ireland to answer queries. Not much luck with the Gibsons though, and Sullivans are our current focus.
