Any place on this site which has no COUNTRY specified is in "The British Isles"
   that is England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland.
Other places have a country included, e.g. Eygpt, U.S.A.
Some place names use archaic terms, which were correct AT THAT TIME, e.g. Western Canada.

Reliance on our work, or any published source, whether electronic or in print, can be hazardous to your pedigree if you do not make the effort to verify what you find.
