Family History

Family History Tree with Photos

This page shows my family tree. Squezzing everything in is difficult and some generation lines may be boken.

The order of the sections follows the family tree starting with the BUTLER family and later the BURTON family by generation. Some photographs could have been placed in more than one section as they feature more than one generation.

It should be noted that registrations of births, deaths and mariages are often recorded a month or two after the event.  For example the mariage of Frederick Burton to Doris Butler was October 6th 1934 but online search records give it as December 1934.
