This project aims to pull together, as much as possible, the many varied families of this small county.

My wife hails from there, and her family has roots there going back several generations. Most of the older families have married into all the other older families many times over many generations, such that when I do a relationship check on someone, I almost ALWAYS get something like this:

1st cousin 1x removed of wife of uncle of husband of 1st cousin of husband of wife of brother-in-law of nephew of wife of 2nd cousin of your wife.
AND, those links change almost constantly, as new or corrected information comes to light.

It's actually rather fun trying to tweeze out those threads!
