This website is largely my own work with contributions from other researchers who have contacted me and shared information from their own research. Sincere thanks is due to each person for their kindness in contributing in this way

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

Patrick's People is a pedigree family tree of legitimate and illegitimate offspring, showing blood and marriage links over generations, drawing on a variety of resources

The files published on the site feature only people who were born at least 100 years prior to the year in which the site is published

The website is based on my working database. Accuracy is a priority, but, undoubtedly, there have been and will be unintended mistakes of facts, understanding and/or typography. These will be rectified, when noted, as soon as possible, and as time allows

Some files were written in the earliest stages of research and will eventually be reviewed in order to check and update them. The process of reviewing the files is ongoing, so interested users should check back from time to time in case file contents change

Some of the individual or family files have very scant information, others have more. The content of files may vary from time to time as files are updated for greater accuracy and detail, or as family links are uncovered

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' lists contain alternative spellings for people listed; titles may be noted

A system of user IDs (eg User ID: F105) is being introduced gradually, for reference. These will be found in the individual page file under the person's name, but, unfortunately, not in the name lists. User IDs will be attached to the individual in question permanently.

User ID numbers are not the same as the file page number created by the computer programme, as seen in the web page address. Unlike User IDs the file page numbers may change, for example, if two apparently different individuals are merged into one. The files with user ID numbers have been more recently reviewed.
