Welcome to "The Big Tree" which shows the facts I've documented about the three branches of my family tree: my mother's, my father's and my step-father's. My goal is to include only the information for which I've got reasonable documentation. I manage this information offline using Gramps and periodically upload new versions to the web site.
Due to the time and hosting space required, I do not upload photos or scans of documents. However, I do maintain copies offline whenever possible.
Interested researchers and family members may request an account in order to see details on living individuals and facts tagged private. In addition, source citations are currently available only those with accounts, as some of the text associated with a few citations has information on living people.
Note for those of you coming to this web site through links on Find A Grave or other sites: this is not the best way to contact me for things not directly related to the trees presented here.
This family tree was last updated on September 9, 2018. There are 1,539 surnames in this family tree. If you have any comments or feedback please contact Philip Weiss.

James Parker is the son of Patrick Parker and Mary Murphy who went west to California. I've added a fair number of people to his branch, now that I have documentation.
However, I still do not have information on what happened to his wife, Ellen Neagle Parker. If any researcher has information or documentation on her, please contact me.
This past week I moved hosting for this site to a new provider. There shouldn't be much difference, but the new host supports Let's Encrypt certificates. That means logging in here is more secure, and it's a lot harder to snoop on web traffic.
New data covers a lot of difference parts of my tree, but the largest part of the update is in the descendants ot Frank Parker and Ellen Kenefick.
I've refreshed the data again. No specific focus this time. Just adding more people and events that have solid sources. I still have quite a few documents that need to be processed before I really start researching again.
I've refreshed the data again today. It includes information gathered from a couple of free weekends using ArkivDigital's Swedish church records.
