General text updated 23 January 2021 (GEDCOM request only)


Important Notes:

1. These reports only include family members whom we believe have been clearly linked into the particular family lines. We have received a great deal of information from other family members for which we are most grateful, and from our own extensive research. We are still hoping for those vital missing pieces of information to be discovered to enable us to link various individual family lines and build a much broader family tree.

2. The information contained in these reports has been gathered from many sources, and we cannot guarantee their accuracy. If the information is important to you, you are responsible for checking its validity and accuracy. However, if you do find any inaccuracies, please let us know.

3. Privacy Statement: In light of recent cases of international identity theft, we have removed all references to living individuals from this website and replaced them with "Living".
If you find any information on this website about yourself or living family members which you wish to be removed, please advise us (privately) through the website Guest Page - click here. If you have trouble tracing your own family branch because of this policy, please send us details of yourself, your parents and your grandparents, privately through the Guest Page, and we will advise you to which branch of the family you belong (if we are able to find a link). We are sorry for this inconvenience, but believe your security must be paramount.

4. We regret that GEDCOMs will NOT be available on this website in future.
If you would like an up-to-date GEDCOM for any family branch, please email a request to: john.blaber@blaberfamily.org.uk . You must be able to prove beyond any doubt that you are a member of that family branch.
