Website Update Tuesday 15 September 2015

The website was updated yesterday, Tuesday 15 September 2015.

This update focuses on information on the descendants of William Partington Pask from Lincolnshire (Chart 14), as detailed in the blog titled Descendants of William Partington Pask.

At the age of 11, William left Liverpool and signed up on a ship travelling to Australia, as a cabin boy. He settled, and married in Queensland, and had ten children. There is a lot of additional information — several photographs and numerous newspaper articles from the Townville Daily Bulletin.

28 new narratives have been added since the last update on 30 August 2015. There is now a total of 11,031 detailed narratives available on the website and 17,985 (28 new) people in our database.

A full list of the recent changes to the narratives is available in the New or Changed Narratives section.
