The Lovelock Family History Web Site
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; however, neither this Web
Site nor the name Lovelock have been registered with the Guild of One Name Studies.
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 I apologise.
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
into 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:
section includes links to:
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 individual county, mainly the English counties, although there is
also a section for general source material covering more than one county.
There are in addition smaller collections of data for Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, New Zealand, Scotland, the USA, 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.
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 current trees.
Please don't hesitate to contribute!
