Pitcairn Family Help Page
It has been our intention to keep the information
contained herein very simple. This is not meant as an insult to those with
the IT knowledge but merely to allow everyone, no matter what you
capabilities are with this darn computer.
Along the top of each page you will see links
such as "Help", click the left hand button once on the subject
that you wish to see and the page should appear beneath. Notice how we say
should, this is because different download times may effect how quickly
the page is viewed. This is another reason why we have kept the site relatively
easy to view, to try at least to minimize download times.
On the left hand side you will notice the Main
Family Branch titles. FB1 relates to the Mainline Pitcairn Family and
lists all those individuals who are contained therein. Because the family
is so big, it was thought best to split the sub families in to relevant
branches, not only does it allow easier browsing and record management,
but once you are familiar with the process, you will, we hope, agree that
it make much more sense than having just one big confusing family.
If you know where your own family fits into the
mainline, then this would be the quickest way to identify your family.
Locate the main branch line member and follow their family back or
forward, which ever is your desire.
On the other hand you may be like the rest of us
mortals and have no idea where or how your own families ancestors fit into
this melting pot. Easy, go to the search page at
the top of this page and look for the search option (small box you can enter
text in). put in your name or that of one of your known ancestors and
press submit. You will then be presented with a list of matches to that
name. From here you will hopefully be able to identify the individual you
were seeking. If there is more than one response, check them out by
clicking on the relevant name and seeing their personal details. If they
are not for the correct person, click "back" on your internet
browser and it will take you back to the results list, then just try
If you happen to know an event date, for example
your grandfather's year of birth, type in the date and click submit, again
you will be presented with a list of matches to that date. Don't be surprised
if there are more than entry for a particular date, remember this is a big
family and there was always a lot going on.
