If you could see your ancestors all standing in a row,

Would you be proud of them or not, or don't you really know?

Some strange discoveries are made when climbing family trees,

And some of them you know do not particularly please.

 

If you could see your ancestors all standing in a row,

There might be some of them perhaps, you wouldn't care to know

But here's another question which requires a different view.

If you could meet your ancestors, would they be proud of you?

 

(Citation from Edith Fletcher's pedigree book)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to my family history website ‘Dent Family Linx’. After many years of research and with the invaluable help of many others, I feel that it is time to share my findings with my family and fellow researchers. My search into the lives of my ancestors, has been an interesting journey and one filled with fascination and discoveries; some good, some not so good. But I hope visitors will find it both interesting and an inspiration if they are venturing out on their own family history research.

 

Please note that I am neither a professional genealogist nor website designer, so I trust visitors will make allowances for any human errors that may have occurred. Genealogy is not an exact science, and many obstacles and brick walls were faced along the way. I have endeavoured to give as accurate an account as possible, but of course, I give no guarantees; so my advice is always to do your own homework and check records for yourself. I also hope that visitors to my website, who possibly share common ancestors with me, may be able to help fill in some of the missing details. Viewers should also note that many records have been mis-transcribed, or names and dates recorded incorrectly by the enumerator.
