My mother’s chart

Grandparents Lane

Alfred and Ruby Lane, 1942, Sydney 1.2.1 and 1.2.2


All the data below has been extracted from birth, death and marriage certificates and from reports by professional researchers in the UK. The chart has been limited back to my great great great great grandparents, however on a number of lines I have information extending further back in time.

The numbering system, 1 = male, 2 = female. As an example, is a male who married female, and his parents will be and Using this system means each direct ancestor has a unique number.

This chart does not include brothers and sisters or persons living.

It should be appreciated that the place of birth, baptism, marriage, death and burial may have occurred in a place other than where the person was living, for example, a death can occur in a hospital some distance from where the person lived.
