Shetland Ancestors

My mother's family came from the Shetland Isles, and this tree traces my Shetland ancestors.

In constructing the tree I have made extensive use of Tony Gott's Shetland Family History Web site. A number of other people have also contributed to the data on this Web site, and I'd like to thank them all for their help.

The Shetland Ancestors database has been installed on the Kiwitrees software.
One advantage is that the Google Maps module is now working once more (it was broken on PhpGedView).
