Welcome to the family of Lois Willis.
This site brings together information on the various branches of my family.
The main branches are Whimpey, Willis, Marr, Casey.
Some of the other main surnames include Meiklejohn, Clyne,
Smith, Hooton, Mulder, Theisinger, Harley and Docwra.
This site is a work in progress, and I have more information
that I have not yet added to the website. Where possible, I have confirmed the information against "primary"
sources, such as birth death marriage certificates,
census records, obituaries etc, however, some of the
information comes from "secondary" sources, such as other family
members, online trees, etc, and has not
yet been confirmed.

This year (2014) will see the 100 year anniversary of the marriage of my grandparents, John Ernest Whimpey and Ivy May Harley. To celebrate this occasion I have thought about setting up a section for the descendants of John and Ivy to share news about their families and photos with other descendants of John and Ivy.
Before setting up these pages, I'd like to see if there is enough interest in this idea. If you are a descendant of John and Ivy, please click the contact us link, and let me know if you are interested or not.
Some of you may already know that Christine has participated in a study on face blindness. If you are a descendant of John and Ivy, and would like to participate in this study, please contact me, and I'll pass on the information to Christine.
If you have any questions or comments about the information on this site, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
5 February 2014 - It's been a while since I've done much work on the family tree, so I don't have any "Latest news" at the moment.
The main genealogical sites I have used for my genealogical research include:
Find My Past UK
For a more detailed list of the records available at these sites, plus other sites and resources I have used, refer to my Main Resources page.
