The Big Tree

About this site

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 December 5, 2018. There are 1,605 surnames in this family tree. If you have any comments or feedback please contact Philip Weiss.

The latest update includes more information on James Leland Parker's family and descendants, who moved to Saskatchewan about 1911.  Newspapers.com has a pretty good run of the the Leader-Post, which most of this latest information is pulled from.

September I continued to work on the descendants of James Parker.  Those records are now updated.

More data from James Parker branch

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.

New host

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.

Data refreshed

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.
