Wallace/Wallis of Wiltshire (Brinkworth/Hankerton]

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Sandra Report 15 Sep 2020 23:28

I am finally moving on with my search for family of Maurice Wallace (Maris Wallis) and have found his family in Brinkworth, Wilts and Hankerton, Wilts. He wasnt an only child but No 10 of 14.
His father was Francis Wallis 1800 and mother Sarah Pinnell 1799, Sarah was also from a large family. We seem to have gained a Collingburn (spelled many ways) thrown into the mix. My head is bursting now with many possibilities.
I have been told there is a Ged-file on Moonrakers specific to the Wallaces /Wallis' in Wiltshire but cannot view it. Can anyone tell me how I could view this without using genes and it overwriting my tree? or any other suggestions

What are you looking for Sandra?

In which direction do you wish to research?

When was Maurice/Maris born? Do you have any documentary backup?

Do you have a facility to download the gedcom file in question from the site?

In that case, you could look for a free tree building software program to download to your computer, then open the downloaded gedcom file with that.

I'm afraid it's not something I've done myself.

It does mean that if you want to transfer information to your GR tree, once you've verified it to your satisfaction, you'll need to do it manually.

EDIT: I can't find the gedcom you're talking about on the site, did you actually find it?

I did find a wallace ged in the end - the view 'persons' listed these names: The 'listings' option showed details from the 1830s through to 1950s, so doesn't look to be much help with your family.

As far as can be determined using FMP, and backed up on the GRO site, Asher was the last child of the marriage.

Sarah was 50 when she had Asher (if he was actually hers) - it would be somewhat unrealistic to suggest that she had four further chidlren
