The site was originally intended to record information on the Boggitt
(Yorkshire), Hankinson (Cheshire) and Rushby (Lincolnshire/Yorkshire)
families, but rapidly grew to include other lines as well.
The research has been particularly exhilarating - especially when
one breaks down the proverbial brick wall - as well as time consuming.
I know what I'll be doing when I retire!
Descendents of all the families listed on this site eventually
found their way to Canada and the U.S.

First, I must acknowledge my brother who started Boggitt-hunting
some 20 years ago. This was well before the Internet and all lookups

The following people helped with the Rushby side of the family:
Peter and Marie.
