Site Policy


The information on this Web Site is the result of a collective effort by a fairly large number of people, and most of it has been obtained from public documents available in published form, either at historical archives or on-line. Some information has been supplied by private individuals about their own families.

The privacy of living persons is respected. Information supplied by individuals about their own relatives who may still be alive will not be publicly displayed on this Web Site. Information obtained on living individuals from public sources may be displayed as source material, for example UK Civil BMD Indexes. However, once source information is analysed and constructed to show relationships and family connections, such as in the compiling of family trees, details of all living persons, other than their names, will be excluded.

Information supplied by individuals will normally be acknowledged on the Web Site unless requested otherwise. However, email addresses will normally not be included, to prevent spam harvesters from collecting and misusing addresses. Any personal contact information provided by you, for example your email or home address, will not be passed on to any third party without specific permission from you.

This Web Site contains links to other sites. No responsiblity is taken for the content and the privacy practices of those sites. You should examine each site's privacy policy and make your own decisions regarding the site and the information it contains.


Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information obtained and the family lines that have been constructed using it. However, errors may creep in, and original and/or secondary sources may themselves contain mistakes. Sometimes we present speculative family lines to stimulate discussion and further research. Visitors are encouraged to advise us of any inaccuracies they find, and/or to add to the fund of information wherever they can, by sending an email to the Lovelock Discussion Group: (Instructions for how to join the Discussion Group can be found on the Discussion Group page.)
