                       Welcome to this Genealogy project 


This FREE software is named  AncesTree - to avoid potential conflict with other software.  It is MS Vista compatible (follow instructions).  The latest version (Aug 2015 +) uses a different database (SQlite.db)

This product includes over 600 records & 300 photos & documents - together with genealogy including family histories of  Bowers, Byfield,  Calvo,  Chivers,  Collett,  Cooney,  Dawn,  Dillon,  Goding,  Goodall,  Hall,  Howie,  King,  Kirby,  Manley,  Morffew,  Newbold,  Palermo,  Parlor,  Rhys,  Smith,  Starr ...   plus many other families integrated with these.    

I have decided NOT to even make a nominal charge for the software -even though it does constitute many, many hours of work.  IT IS  FREE, but feel free to donate if you feel convicted ;-)

I suggest that you read the manuals - particularly the Deployment file - ESPECIALLY if you use MS Vista.

I hope this may be a valid starting point for many to follow their  Ancestry, and also to leave something for our children  ...

Kind Regards,
Ian M Byfield
