Website Updated 19 January 2008

The website was updated today Saturday 19 January. This update includes significant information on the Monmouthshire Pask(e)s in preparation for a new book.

During the Christmas period I have been working extensively in collaboration with Sylvia Rycroft. She provided numerous charts that together with information based on the births, marriages, and deaths in the Monmouthshire, and surrounding districts linked together numerous "loose ends". A superb effort by Sylvia, without her information it would have taken considerably longer to determine these links.

Subsquently I established that William Paske who was born in 1768 in Cwmcarvan (Chart 4), was the great-grandson of Isaac Pask who was born in 1700, and lived in Llanvihangel-ystern-Llewern, Monmouthshire (Chart 12). These charts have been merged, and this family represented by the red-icon, and shown as Chart 4. This red-icon family now consists of over 613 direct descendants of Isaac Pask.

There are now three main progenitors in Monmouthshire:

  1. Chart 4: Isaac PASK, (c1705 - ) lived in Llanvihangel-ystern-Llewern, Monmouthshire #3687

  2. Chart 15: Isaac PASKE, (c1800 - ) lived in Kilgwrrwg, Monmouthshire #2855

  3. Chart 34: Philip PASK, (1768 - 1843) lived in Bryngwyn, Monmouthshire #4977
Overall, a further 341 narratives are available. The database counter is now on the unique id #10084, however allowing for duplication deletions, and merges there are 9776 unique records in the database.

Most sincerest thanks to everyone who has contributed. A full list of these recent changes to the narratives is available in the New or Changed Narratives section.
