Sylvia Edith TAYLOR
in New Zealand,
in Surrey, England; and
here in Sydney, in the "Land down Under"
As a Matter of Interest, my first Name is my Mothers Maiden Name; and my second Name is the
Maiden Name of my Great-GrandMother on my Father's Side of the Family.
On the other hand, Anthony's G-G-G-G-G-Grandmother is an Armitage; and
while he is a direct Bishop, my G-G-Grandmother was a Bishop.
Anthony Bishop, Sylvia Taylor and myself, along with many others are descended from
William Bishop, born 1775 in Bath, Somerset and Diana Harwood, born 1777, at Hurst in Berkshire

Just eMail me, or eMail Anthony, or Sylvia or Ron Granger or Mark Turnbull
As of May 2005, 3000 plus Names
associated with the McColl Family have been added to the Database. They were
provided by Pamela Harrison with help
from others following a large McColl Family reunion in Victoia.
In addition, there are now, quite a large number of individual Family Sites, containing additional Data,
in the form of Notes etc. Since the number of these are now quite substantial they are divided into 4 Groupings. One Group of Families that are specifically related to myself, a second
that are specifically related to Anthony Bishop [Cornwall], a third Group of Families related
to Sylvia Robertson [New Zealand]; with a further Group for the Keep Family and related Families. My Connection to the Keep Family is through the same William Bishop and Diana Harwood connection. Eliza Bishop Ulph, a distant Cousin married Joseph Scrivener Keep in 1852.
For some Years the Genealogy Data was stored in PAF [Personal Ancestral File] and the Pages were produced by
that Program. At present I have changed over to using Legacy; but not all Family Pages are produced by Legacy; and there are still some PAF Pages.
Each Group of Families have a commentary and Links to the relevant Families through an Introductory Page.

Since these pages were last updated in late 2004 and early 2005, I have had so much additional information sent to me, that we have increased the total number of Individuals from 20,000 or thereabouts to almost 45,000 Individuals. I have been as diligent as I can in adding all this Information; but I am sure that some errors have crept in. I also believe there may still be some errors from my original addition of all the Information that I was sent before previous upgrades. I ask your patience and assistance with rectifying any that you may find; and further ask that you eMail me with any corrections you feel necessary.
This "6th" Upgrade of the full Body of the Database is now being put in place; but, the various specific Family Pages will be updated as additional Information is added.
The Individual Family Pages will be noted with the Date they have been updated.
Howard Smith, August 10, 2006.
As of the end of July, 2009, after receiving a very large File of Data associated with the Collard, Denne and other related Families, we have over 81,000 Individuals in the DataBase. Many of the newer People are related to the Collard and Denne Families.
