|About Devon Roots
I have been researching my family tree for several years now.It all
started when the house my mother was born in came up for sale.Browsing
the internet for details of the house we came across census information of the
family living there at the time..as the saying goes one thing led to
I have been lucky in that I still live within a few miles, of both my
husband's and my ancestors, so am able to visit local churches,museums etc. in search of
I am hoping through this site I can share not just the details of my family
but the many old family photos I am fortunate enough to have and in time local
photographs of churches, villages etc.
In the photo section I have included an album labelled 'UNKNOWN' . Please if
you can indentify anyone in any of the photos I would love to know who they
are. Most of the photos in this album I believe are connected to the ABBOTT FAMILY
As this site is still very much under construction please visit again, as more
names will be added as I progress with my research.
I have started the tree with my maternal Grandfather.
Thank you for looking and please email me if you feel I can help with local
research or if you are able to indentify any of the 'Unknowns'
Finally but most important of all I must thank everyone who has helped me in
my research.Those who have given information from parish records, I appreciate
how difficult some of the fiches are to read!! Those who have shared their own
family research details and those who have spent time discussing probabilities!
Many thanks to all of you.
