Welcome to the Hopkins &
I first started
tracing our family tree back in the early 1980's when my job took me to
London on a regular basis and I could spend the odd half hour in St
Catherine's house looking for the birth and marriage records.
More recently I have
been using the various internet resources to continue my search, finding
additional birth and marriage certificates, census information and using
the IGI, as well as talking to family members
to gain a greater insight into the social history of the family.
The website is an
attempt to not only produce a family tree, but to also find out about what
they did for a living, where they lived, including a history of the places
they came from, the schools, churches and estates where they may have
worked and a social history of the times.
Photographs are also
included of more recent times.
I have also included
scanned images of the records obtained for birth and marriage.
Please feel free to
browse the website.
It would be great to hear from you if our family trees meet at any point.
Also if you see any errors or discrepancies in the information presented
please let me know.
I can be contacted
In addition, if you
would like a website for your own family tree, I would be happy to quote
for the design.
