Have been interested in Family History for over a decade, since being spurred to action by an Internet Posting by Canadian Artist Lorne Wagman who had found an IRONSIDE family tree book in a second hand bookstore, and was generous enough to list some of its contents. My mother was an Ironside, and I have been very fortunate to have found ancestors back to c1450. The "fan out" into other families is, of course, considerable. I hope to be able to share these with you, once I have overcome the hurdles involved in splitting GEDCOMS!............. On the other hand... I am finding it somewhat easier to add individuals manually.... less prone to mistakes too!

Best Regards ....Mike

Mike, I added quite a lot to 'your' profile of

I only started on it to get rid of a data base error but ended up doing a lot of research and got rather carried away. If there is anything that you don't like or would wish me to change, please tell me

Well, the only "title" as such is "GENEALOGY OF THE IRONSIDE FAMILY" which is not visible on the cover.

It is quite a thin book, of non-standard dimensions... somewhere between A4 & A5... with a dark blue cover, displaying the family "crest" .....A Cross with Crosslets in Gold beneath Inscription "In Hoc Signo Vinces".

Books like that can and do end up on eBay and in 2nd hand stores, so I just wondered if it has a title.

It was distributed privately amongst known members of the Ironside family at the time. My mother was one of the lucky recipients.

I see references to the books written by General Sir Edmund Ironside and his many accomplishments, but I haven't found the title of the Ironside Genealogy.

Hi Jan,

The Ironside Book was compiled in the 1930s by General Sir Edmund Ironside (Ironside-193) who was a descendant of the Scottish Line of Ironside. General Sir Edmund owned lands in the Buchan region of Northern Aberdeenshire, and is said to have been the inspiration for the character "Richard Hanney" in John Buchan's book "The 39 Steps".
