CADZOW ancestors – Feb2017version.
Contents last updated; (BLACK and MANN family details added) April 2017.
The Roman Numeral in front of a name (above) indicates the generation (counting backwards) and the number of “great”s that you need to add to describe their relationship to me. i.e.
- “-i-” = my “great-grandparent”,
- “-iv-” = my “4x-great-grandparent”.
Click the numeral to link to any posts on the blog that I’ve tagged with that individual’s name, or to all the posts tagged with that surname (if the individual person doesn’t have a tag).
If someone’s name is highlighted as a hyperlink, you can click that link to an external webpage with information about that person. I generally favour entries on Wikipedia, though other sources may come up if there is nothing on Wikipedia, or if the alternative offers better information.
* My sources;
WALKER family notes/papers – various notes and records kept within the WALKER family that I’ve been able to look through.
CADZOW tree – from Libby DUNLOP – who I had contact with via the internet/e-mail in June 2005.
CADZOW tree – from Lionel & Janet BENSON – who I had contact with via the internet/e-mail in June 2005.
1881 Census – viewed on CDR. My own search of the 1881 census, via CDRom.
International Genealogical Index (IGI) – My own searches of the index, used mainly to double-check other sources. Not to be fully relied on by itself. Given the chance I like to look at the OPR microfilms (from which the IGI is transcribed), which tend to contain many more details than the IGI.
BLACK and MANN families (added, April 2017);
Melodies And Memories, with a History of the BLACKS of Breich Water District – by John BLACK. Published in 1909, by A. M’Laren & Son, Argyle Street, Glasgow (Digitized by the Internet Archive in 2012 with funding from National Library of Scotland).
Hamilton Family History – including the BLACK family in its ancestry. Much of the details about the BLACK family appear to be based on John Black’s “Melodies And Memories” (see above). But this website also cites Old Parish Registers, suggesting that the website’s author has done further research to confirm the details from “Melodies And Memories”.
Gregg Townsend’s Genealogy Page – showing a family tree of the BLACK family, from Whitburn, West Lothian, and West Calder, Mid Lothian. Much of the details about the BLACK family appear to be based on John Black’s “Melodies And Memories” (see above).
PrenticeNet – an article about the descendants of Thomas PRENTICE, of Lesmahagow, Lanarkshire, on a website about the PRENTICE surname (and variations). Having exchanged e-mails with the editor, the details that I have for the descendants of Helen BLACK and James CADZOW [ii], have been added to this article in April 2017.
My apologies if I’ve missed any particular sources or credits that I should have given. I believe that these are my major sources.
