After uploading my “MINE” family tree to, I could see a link to another user’s tree (someone called boyduk). Using this tree, and linking to censuses, births, marriages & deaths in my database I was fairly quickly able to construct a new tree. I traced the family as far back as I could to Mortehoe, Devonshire, England, to Thomas GAMMON (born approximately 1805). He married Prudence Watts GAMMON who is in my tree.

MIKE page added on main website

I just cross-checked another MIKE 1901 census page in my Gramps software. Then I decided I would create a Family Group page for this tree even though I am not finished working through it. This time I have experimented with a 3 generation descendant report on the Group Page. I have some work to do with the formatting to make this look nice!
