PATRICK'S PEOPLE

A PEDIGREE FAMILY HISTORY WEBSITE

INFORMATION ABOUT THIS SITE

The webmaster may be contacted by email at webmaster@patrickspeople.scot

The website is the work of one amateur researcher, Mary McGonigal, with contributions occasionally from other researchers who have contacted the webmaster and volunteered the use of information from their own work

The website was named originally for Patrick Quigly, born 17 March 1824 in Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland, and of Irish descent

It  uses a pedigree format showing blood and marriage links over generations, drawing on a variety of resources

It  features files about individuals who were born at least 100 years prior to the year of publication

There are four sections: "our family" where all are related by birth or marriage; then "other families and individuals", an assortment of various unconnected families, or individuals; thirdly, "families of Scottish painters", and last, "additional Information" notes on linked topics

Accuracy is a priority, though there have been and will be mistakes of facts, understanding and/or typography. Researchers should consider doing original research themselves where they are unhappy with the accuracy of the information

Reviews of the files is ongoing, so interested users should check back from time to time in case file contents change

The website is based on a working database; greater accuracy may only be achieved over time through regular ongoing research and updates of the website

Some files have scant information, others more; the content may vary from time to time as files are updated for greater accuracy and detail

Where exact dates have been found they are published; some dates are rendered as "about" a particular year and these should be treated with caution, not least because they may be subject to change as more information is ucovered

Spouses and children are noted where known, but users should be aware that some spouses or children may not have been found or, if found, not included

The index of names and the surnames' list contain alternative spellings for the names of many of the people listed; titles may be noted, though not always

A system of user IDs is being introduced gradually, for reference. These will be found in the individual page file, but, unfortunately, not in the name lists. For a time only some files will have a user ID, until all files have been worked through
