A 27-page account by his father, William Arthur Hudson, of his childhood in Macclesfield, Cheshire, and his first jobs as a gardener’s boy and a post-office clerk. One of his many interests, photography, produced a series of self-published picture postcards of Derbyshire scenes and people.
A database of 800 relatives since the 18th century including the following family names: Allender, Bell, Buckler, Evans, Heath, Hudson, Lindow, Pilkington, and many others!
You can get to this database:
on the internet at the ‘Genopro’ website (that’s the software I use). This version may not include the latest revisions.
by downloading acompressed collection of html fileswhich you can read on your browser. Just download it, unzip it and click on any individual file. This will first open a very small window, but then you’ll get a larger one which will offer the options below.
You can view this as a network – i.e. a conventional family tree – by clicking on the little tree icon, and then selecting the sub-family that you’re interested in. (The whole tree would be too big to display, so I’ve broken it into sub-trees.)
The tree is shown in rather a small window, but you can make this bigger by clicking the window icon on the left of the red X, zoom in and out with the + and – icons, and then navigate round it by clicking the green arrows.
Better still, switch from your browser to the proper software for viewing these trees: Genopro. You can do this as follows:
make sure the little window is small, with a space above it for information about individuals.
click any individual of interest to you.
in the little window of information about the individual, select the little family-tree icon next to the real-tree icon.
when you’re asked what to do with it, select ‘open with Genopro ….’.
you’re now using Genopro to view the entire database (divided into sub-families shown on the tabs at the bottom of the screen).
To get information about any individual, double-click the named node.
I’d be grateful for help with this database, so if you can provide extra information, please email me and I’ll add it.
