November 2011

Many relatively small changes and additions to most of the family trees, reflecting previously missing information about migrations of Doodsons to the USA and Canada and more detail about baptisms and marriages. Quite a lot of interesting material gleaned from new records on FindMyPast from new Manchester records (registers from schools, workhouses and prisons), from Cheshire parish records and the Ellis Island immigration records (some of which was tallied back to FindMyPast passenger lists). I also tried to link all other Doodsons listed in the 1841 census who weren't already on a family tree on the site - not very successfully...

New family tree linked by the first name Egerton. If you've got an ancestor called Doodson with a first or middle name Egerton, chances are you're related to this lot!
Updates to
Kearsley and Australia family tree.
Various changes to the
explanation of the family trees, including explanation of why I've used Descendent rather than Pedigree charts.
