Welcome to the NormanRoots Wiki

Thank you for visiting. I hope you find the information here useful to your research.

The NormanRoots Wiki is largely centered around publishing my transcriptions of historical, genealogically-significant documents. Virtually all documents bear directly upon individuals in my family tree.

Please view the rules I apply when I'm transcribing. It will make clear the basis of my approach to transcribing, as well as the meaning and purpose of my annotations.

This is an ongoing effort, and information is being added regularly. Subscribe to my RSS feed to get notifications of changes or new additions.


I've developed a technique for compiling my census transcriptions onto one page for an entire family group (i.e., parents and their children). I use a table to record the name and age of each family member for each census in which they appear, and the table includes all censuses recorded during the lifetimes of the parents. I further provide citations to the particular census entry from which each data element came.

I've started with the earliest known ancestor for each of the four surnames represented by my wife's and my parents. From there, I created Family Group pages for each child, grandchild, etc. as data is available. To view, click on one of the surnames under Families in the sidebar at left.
