The Big Tree

About this site

Welcome to "The Big Tree" which shows the facts I've documented about the three branches of my family tree: my mother's, my father's and my step-father's.  My goal is to include only the information for which I've got reasonable documentation.  I manage this information offline using Gramps and periodically upload new versions to the web site.

Due to the time and hosting space required, I do not upload photos or scans of documents.  However, I do maintain copies offline whenever possible.

Interested researchers and family members may request an account in order to see details on living individuals and facts tagged private.  In addition, source citations are currently available only those with accounts, as some of the text associated with a few citations has information on living people.

This family tree was last updated on February 19, 2018. There are 1,430 surnames in this family tree. If you have any comments or feedback please contact Philip Weiss.

I've refreshed the data again.  No specific focus this time.  Just adding more people and events that have solid sources.  I still have quite a few documents that need to be processed before I really start researching again.

I've refreshed the data again today.  It includes information gathered from a couple of free weekends using ArkivDigital's Swedish church records.

I've uploaded new data.  Approximately 400 more people are added.  They aren't fully documented, but the citations that exist are pretty solid.
