About The Botten & Record Family Tree
Please sign in to see more.
Hello, who ever you are, and welcome to the Botten & Record family tree.

Actually the intention is to work on all the main family lines out as far as the Grandparents  of myself and my wife. So the title of this web site could have been "The Botten, Record,  Malley, Moore, Griffin, Crespin, Ford & Pitman Family Tree", but that is a bit of a mouthful, a  rather large mouthful if truth be known.  So to make my life and everyone else's a bit easier,  I decided to keep it, the title, relatively (No pun intended) short.

Am I being ambitious with eight family lines to trace and follow. Yes, I expect I am biting off  a lot more than I can chew, but it will keep me busy, and then some. As you will see when you  look at the tree in detail, some of the main family lines are fairly well populated, and others  have one or two generations and that's it. So, after being caught out in my early  investigations by importing a gedcomm from another family member, without checking it first, I  have ended up with a rather large tree and although there seems to be a lot of people in the  tree, there are a lot of branches that do spread out fairly wide and really do not need to be  in this tree at all. So I am slowly pruning these unnecessary twigs out and at some point in  the future, the tree will be those lines I want and close connections via marriage, etc. But as  you will appreciate, it is a long slow job.

Please don't forget that as with any genealogical effort, this is a continual work-in-progress  and includes information from many various sources, as well as various remote family members or  contacts. While every attempt to document all sources has been made, there are many  opportunities for errors to happen and even conflicts within the sources themselves, and  sometimes I just get carried away and forget to put them in, I shouldn't, but I do. What can I  say, I am only human, and it may just be me making a mistake in the transcribing of data into  this tree, I try not to, but it happens. Also, a word of warning. As a lot of this tree is  compiled from various internet based sources and contacts, so there is likely to be a greater  propensity of mistakes in this tree. Just to compound the issue, I am unable to invest in  certificates as much as I would like, which I really need to, but that's life. Warning over.

Anyway, the aim is to provide a resource for all of the families to dip in to as much or as  little as they want, and provide something visible of our past, as the past determines who and  what we are today. It is also meant to help other family historians who have family members  that we share in common, an ancestor who is in both of our individual trees.

If you have any information on:-

1) Any missing relatives.
2) Any facts I don't have or have wrong.
3) People who I think are part of our tree but you know shouldn't be there.
4) Family stories and anecdotes (To go on to the website for all to see, or not to go on the  website, but for family only).
5) Family history.
6) Photographs (Let me know if they are for the website or family only).
(I am sure that you get the idea now of what I am after)

that you are willing to share, please get in contact with me. New information, or corrections  will only make this a better resource for all of us. But even just an e-mail saying "Hello", or  leaving a message in the "Guest Book" would be appreciated.

If you have any suggestions, notice a spelling mistale, or even have a correction to some fact  or other, please contact me (The site administrator) and I will correct the mistakes or make  the necessary changes to facts as soon as I can.

Also, be aware, that this is a copy of my main tree which is stored offline for safety, so if  you have a lot of information you wish to share with me, it would be better if you could send a  gedcomm attached to an e-mail, or printouts, etc. In either case, contact me so we an sort out  what would be the best for both of us. Also, with the main tree being held offline, I only  update my online tree about once a quarter.

Be assured that all the information on any living people in this tree is hidden from the web in general, unless a person has been specifically invited to use this site by me, and then they must have a visitors  password, which I issue and I keep track on those to whom I issued a visitors password.

Just to add to the complexity of my genealogy ambitions, I am trying to update records on "Family Search" and on my Wikitree site as well (Have a look at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Botten-7) so that they all hold the same basic information.

So if you are a Botten, Record, Malley, Moore, Griffin, Crespin, Ford or a Pitman, welcome to  your extended family. And if you aren't any of the above, I hope this helps you in some small  way.

Most of all, who ever you are, Enjoy.
