Tree Data

The following tree data pages contain all individuals currently saved in my Gatward family tree. The data is updated on a regular basis and includes both paternal and maternal ancestors. All known living individuals have had their personal details hidden (see Living People for further information), unless their permission has been given for the details to be shown.

To find an individual, start with the Name Index or use the Search facility. The data can be visualised in a number of different ways by exploring some of the other options below.

Index – A basic index for navigating the data.

Name Index –  All names listed first by surname, and then individual name. These pages include tabs to display the claims, thumbnails, referenced sources, notes, and a fully scrollable bi-directional 6 generation family tree chart. The chart is linked to each person’s profile, and indicates which ancestors and descendants are uncertain (without evidence).

Sources – There are separate pages for every source that include a tab for quoted text separated by page number, and may include thumbnails and URL links when available. There is also a tab for notes, and one to list every claim made by that source so. Source pages will also show title, author, publisher, abbreviated titles, repositories, source quality and more.

Census Table – The Census Table Report (CENtaR) is a concise listing of all Census records found in my database. It shows which individuals are missing census records making it very easy to identify which individuals need further research. Reports include the Id and name of each person included, the Census years considered, and one of 4 codes for each entry: ‘-‘ (not applicable), ‘m’ (missing), ‘?’ (unknown location), ‘XXX’ (location). Further, hovering your mouse over an entry will display source information.

Places – A list of all places referenced within the tree database.

Distribution Map – This map will ‘splatter’ all the locations recorded in the tree database, across the face of a fully featured Google Map. Location markers are grouped into clusters and the total number of persons found within that cluster displayed inside the cluster icon. These clusters are also represented on the surface of the world as a heat map. This initial view gives a great overview of the world wide distribution of the people in your database. Zooming in exposes location markers. Hovering over these displays a conversation bubble with the list of persons found there.

Nobility – A list of titled persons.

Timelines – A complete timeline separated into centuries for including all fully qualified dated events (approximate dates are not listed). The master timeline, unlike a person’s profile page that includes ALL claims, identifies single occurrence events such as birth dates and death dates, and only includes one entry for each, that being the one first occurring in the GEDCOM file with the best certainty assessment, making the timeline as accurate as possible.

Ancestor List – All my ancestors, by generation. The ancestors list, includes besides the traditional information, each individual’s migration path, which traces the location the person has lived in order by date. The migration path uses ISO compliant location codes (i.e. DEU-PN-KY-FL) and is a quick way to view where an ancestor has lived. The A-List also italicizes immigrant ancestors and emphasizes ancestors who are missing one or both parents, making it is easy to identify areas of needed research. The A-List also indicates which ancestors parents are considered uncertain.

Statistics – Collects together the most interesting statistics into one place and displays them. Basic statistics, such as the number of each record type found in your database are displaye as well as other interesting statistics on the total numbers of Locations, Photos, External URLs, Immigrants and Nobility Titles. It also calculates the average life spans for each century for both men and women, the average age of first marriage for both men and women, and the average number of years per generation. For all of these it also provides you the number of persons over which the average was taken. Lastly, the most popular names are tallied an displayed.

Bonkers Report – The Bonkers (GEDCOM Sanity Checker) will help locate and identify groups of claims in your database that are inconsistent with each other. This includes things such as ‘Persons born after they were baptized’, ‘Persons born after their parent’s burial’, ‘Persons who died after they were buried’ etc.

Update History – Details of all recent updates to the database.


All of the tree data pages were generated using Adam: The GEDCOM Family Tree Builder.  This is a free web service written by Tim Forsythe that will allow you to build a complete family tree website from your genealogy database using your GEDCOM file.
