Frequently asked questions
I've written to you but you haven't responded. Are you dead?
No, hopefully I am not dead. I am just snowed under! Please feel free to write to contact me and prompt me as I get so many contacts from so many people that sometimes I occasionally miss something. Prompt me as often as you like. I won't get offended or annoyed.
I have a Kingshott in my family. Will you be able to link them in to the wider Kingshott family?
The Kingshott family is very widespread, and my research is certainly not infallible. However, I am almost certain to be able to link your particular Kingshotts to the main family.
Are you researching any other families, associated with the Kingshotts?
What Family History software do you use?
I used to use Family Tree Maker as my main repository but it has become clunky, unresponsive and keeps crashing. I therefore use the online site at Ancestry as my main archive. This is expensive, but allows me to link lots of information and sources to my research, and also allows for me to contact, and be contacted by, others who may have a link.
Why isn't the information you provide on this site particularly detailed?
It is certainly true that I could include a lot of information on sources and documents that I have viewed, to enable me to compile the information that I have placed on this site. You need to remember that this site is NOT my full research but a summary of it presented, I hope, in a way that others would find interesting, or at the very least readable. If I included all of my notes on every individual the flow of any report or written piece would be lost. It is very doubtful that you would be able to decipher what I was writing in those notes anyway. If you want more information on a particular person, or persons, please just contact me and I will forward it to you on a one-to-one basis.
