Welcome to The Potts Family Tree genealogy web site which has been on the Internet since 1994. This site contains family information on over 10,000 individuals from 3,800 families. If you are an account holder, you are able to add and edit information and view your own relationship with any individual in the database.
The information on these pages has been gathered through the collaborative effort of many individuals. If you would like to collect information from this site, your own contribution would be appreciated in return. Please become a member and help to build these pages and assist others with their family research. Unlike many popular ancestry sites today your use of this site is free.
There are over 1,900 surnames in the family with the major ones being: Anderson, Bayly, Brown, Campbell, Gibson,Graham, Gregg, Hall, Hanover, Langmead, Lawson, Laycock, MacCaig, Madill, Potts, Romanov, Starritt, Stewart,Strachan, and Vernon.
If you are an account holder you can see a chart automatically drawn showing your relationship with any individual you are viewing.
Google Maps integration allows you to draw Pedigree Maps like the image beside - the red bubble is the starting individuals birth place. The blue bubbles show their parents, green for grandparents and yellow for great-grandparents. You can also automatically plot the events in an individuals life.
You can view historical events and events of close relatives in relation to the life of the individual you are viewing. To date I have documented historical event for Australia, Great Britian and the USA. You must change the language in the menu bar to change the events you are viewing. Select the Australian English to view Australian events, British English for UK events and US English to view US events. You must also place a tick in the box next to the type of events found on the Facts and Event s tab for the individual.
This site began due to the hard work of family members who had previously documented their family history. In 1994 I decided to build my first web site and used these books for content. This was the beggining of the journey that led to this site. I have reproduced the books so they will not be lost and linked the individuals in the stories to their records in the tree:
