During the time I have been assembling this information, I have had a considerable number of
People contact me with comments, corrections and with much additional Information.
So, I would like to take this opportunity of acknowledging and thanking them.
All Names, by the way are links to their email addresses.

Firstly, I would like to thank my Third Cousin, once removed, as my Genealogy Program puts it,
Anthony Armitage Bishop
. Anthony has provided me with a great deal of Data, encouragement,
suggestions, comments, criticisms; and general help.

AND, the Person who really got me started, apart from a few of my close Relatives is Colin Ulph,
who lives in Shoreham, in Sussex; and has made a study of the Ulphs and all related Names,
such as Hulf and Alp and everything with any remote similarity.
Colin's Magazine, "Ulph Family News", also won first place in it's class,
in the "2002 Guild of One Name Studies" annual Awards.

And, in September 2003, we received another extremely large volume of information
Sylvia Robertson [nee Taylor] in New Zealand. Sylvia's information has increased
the number of individuals in the database from just under 10000 to well over 16500.
There were so many new Families in this data that they are on an additional "Sylvia" Page.
Again, like Anthony, Sylvia is a Third Cousin, once removed. In fact we are all descended
from William Bishop and Diane Harwood.

Over most of the last year [2003],
Ron Granger, has sent me masses of Information on the
Families of Robert Booth and Robert Smith; and Ron continues to provide additional data.
These Families have also been considerably expanded over the last month or two,
to include information on the Baldwin and Marshall Families, with the assistance of:-
Leta [Smith] Shaeffer, in Maryland and Joanne [Marshall] Wood in Washington State
and Robert Carter in Gloucestershire.
Elizabeth Nicoll, in Scotland, who gave me encouragement in the early days of my
searching for my Family Information; and particularly for help with these same
Robert Booth, Robert Smith and related Families. Thank you very much Elizabeth.

I would also like to thank Mark Turnbull, who recently sent me a large file
of Keep Family data, which included, of course, many other related Families,
some of which are the Busby, Forwood, Jones, Lloyd and White Families.
for more Information on any of these Families, you can contact:-
Mark Turnbull, Airlie Moore, Ralph Godfrey, Tacy Rickard,
or for more Binyon Information visit the WebSite of Charlie Binyon.
The Keeps are related to my Ulph Ancestors.

In May 2005,
Pamela Harrison, following a McColl reunion in Victoria, Australia,
which I understand Pam helped to organize sent me a file of over 3000 Individuals
who are all connected to the McColl Family. The Pages for these Families can be found
at the bottom of the Page: gen_home2.htm .
