Family Tree


   I hope you enjoy and benefit from this site. If you have any pictures, names, dates, or spelling corrections to offer please contact me so we can improve this legacy. Thanks!

   The tree was last updated on Oct. 17, 2023. Here's a history of the changes.  There is also a list of cemeteries, a map of notable places, and a list of research websites that I've used.

There are 5 ways to look at the Family Tree information:

Method 1 is some quick-links for specific individuals, including John Simpson (me), John Stanley Measor (my maternal grandfather), George Brown Simpson (my paternal great-grandfather), Cathey Simpson (my wife), Irene Gagnon (Cathey's paternal grandmother), Albert Joseph Laforge (Cathey's maternal grandfather), and Andy Waggott (Cathey's uncle)

Method 2 is the Names Index that allows you to search for any individual in the database. Are you in there?

Method 3 is to scroll down now, to see lists of pictures of some specific Simpsons and Measors.

I may have additional pictures (including some of you?) even if the name isn't in the list below. If you're interested or worried, contact me and I'll share whatever I have directly with you.  If you wish, I'll post your photos here for the world to enjoy, because you are unique and special, just like everyone else.

Method 4 is the creation of a custom report from the genealogy software that I use. If you're interested in that, contact me and we'll see if one of the options works for you. 

Method 5 would be for you to download my entire database and then import it into your own software.  The file is here, last updated on May 31, 2023.  It's in GEDCOM 5.5.1 format. There are a couple of caveats about taking the data and doing your own thing.  First, the data file has no photos. Those exist on my website only and you're welcome to download them manually.  Secondly, what's in the data file file doesn't precisely agree with what's on my website. Things like same-sex couples and gender pronouns aren't handled by the Legacy Family Tree software, so I manually tweak some HTML files before they get posted to the web.  FYI, I use Legacy Family Tree version 8.0, but there are many good software options.

Some Family Tree Humour

My friend the English teacher recommended that I leave a parcel of land to my kids when I die.  Apparently that means a lot.

Did you know that DNA tests are child proof?

Several publishing companies have refused to publish my family tree research.  That's the story of my life!
