Family Trees Index
Over the years a lot of 'family tree' data has been deposited with the Society. These documents are stored in a series of Folders (prefixed F) and wooden Boxes (prefixed B) which are found in one of the glass fronted bookcases in our Research Room at the Bristol Records Office. Within each folder there are numbered wallets and in each box there are numbered booklets. This index lists all the surnames contained therein and identifies each Folder and/or Box and wallet or book. You can visit the Research Room to examine the original documents. Make a note of the reference numbers shown; you can also check the data in this on-line index using one of the computers in the Research Room.
Thanks are due to Margaret Smith for organising the files and updating the original card index, to Anne Adams who is continuing to update the card index and to Geoff Cole and Pat Hunt for transcribing and checking all the data (some 14,000 records).
- M after the surname means this is the ‘MAIN’ family name shown in the document.
- Name variations have been listed together.
- If there is no Folder or Box number shown, this refers to the book/booklet which is stored separately in one of the bookcases.
