Family Stories

You and Your Family:

This family was researched by the Late Eric Prowd I listed it on behalf of Eric because of the work he had put into the tree.


NB: Superscript behind each descendant name represents the lineage number of that descendant.
This family information was last updated by WENDY PRICE on the 30 May, 2003."

My connection to these families is through the DENNERs as they were my ancestors. And I've been assisting a descendant of the PROWDs etc.

Dear Wendy, Hi there. I'm so glad you are surprised. It took me quite a while to put it all together. I have merely added to your late step-father Eric's genealogy to keep it going.

Would you let me know if there are any corrections, additions?

My GGG Grandparents James William DENNER and Mary Ann PINE are also listed at the aforementioned 'First Families' site.

Thank you,
