Welcome to the Family History site of Tony & Pat Collins.
I had not intended to go down the road of 'ostracising' living people from the 'family'. I took the view that where information is freely available in the public domain, I was at liberty to use it here. Unfortunately, some 'socially-challenged' members of society used some data for malicious purposes and, in order to prevent a recurrence, I have been forced to remove references to living people from the website. Anyone wishing more information on living people should contact me giving evidence of their family connection, when I would be happy to furnish my research.
. (A side-effect of these exclusions is that some sentences may appear quite weird!)
Anyone with information (to add or amend), please contact me initially through the email link (my name in the "compiler" credit) at the foot of the appropriate page (so that I know who we are talking about).
The "Site Help" button on the menubar at the top of each page gives access to more information on how the site "works". To enhance your browsing experience, it is recommended that you have a look to find what functionality is available.
