purpose of this Web Site is to collect together family
history information concerning families with the Lovelock
name, and related versions of it. Such collections of
information, which are not restricted to a single family,
are often referred to as One Name Studies, although
neither this Web Site nor the name Lovelock have been
registered with the Guild of One Name
Site is very much a collective effort, and many people
have made contributions. As far as possible I have tried
to acknowledge the individual(s) concerned, in specific
instances, but no doubt I've made some omissions for which
For those who are interested, there is an overview of the origins and evolution of the Web site, with an indication of the major contributors.
How the Material is Organised
order to structure the information, it has been organised
in six main sections,
which are shown in the
menu bar which can be found in most cases at the
top of each Web Site page.
Each of these main sections is divided into a number of
sub-sections, which are displayed in roll-down menus,
revealed by hovering your cursor over the main section
items in the menu bar. Clicking on items in the roll-down
menu will take you to the corresponding Web Site page.
|Following is a brief description of each of the main sections:|
from providing this Introduction, this section is a bit of
a catch-all for material which doesn't fit easily anywhere
else. It includes:

||This section contains records of baptisms, marriages and burials from Parish Registers and other sources, including the LDS IGI, etc. There is also a large collection of Census entries. Much of the material is organised by county, although there is also a section for general source material covering more than one county. There are in addition collections of data for Australia and New Zealand, and for India, Ireland, the USA, Canada and the West Indies.|
| Trees &
number of Lovelock family trees have been constructed, and
these are generally grouped according to the county in
which they have their origin, although some of them
ultimately straddle several counties, and in several cases
more than one country.
LovelockTrees: This Web-based genealogy software (Webtrees) allows you to browse databases corresponding to each Lovelock family tree. This gives access to much more information than that included in the descendant trees, including details of data sources, etc.
|Gedcom Files||Gedcom files for many of the Lovelock trees can be downloaded from this section. Gedcom files will only be useful to you if you use a genealogy software program. Gedcom files use a program-independent data format to represent family history data. This enables family history information to be shared between genealogy programs.|
|Work in Progress||This
section provides a home for material which is
somewhat tentative or incomplete. It is also used to
pose questions about possible connections and for 'missing
persons' or 'strays' who don't seem to fit into any of our
