With a bit of help from Paul, I have managed to create a website for the Maishman family. At present it has only been drawn to the attention of members of the family (and a few interested people associated with the Maishman family) who have access to the internet. If anyone else would like to access it, the address is
Perhaps I should reiterate that the main purpose of this website is genealogical, to enable relatives to find links with us, to encourage research and to provide a communication channel for our family. However, there must be a balance between what I would like to show for genealogical reasons and what is private or used for security (in conjunction with PINs for example). I have generally followed the recommended rule of not showing data for people born after 1900.
I would like to thank especially Andy Glenister and Eddie Rolls who have given me very useful constructive criticism and I hope to incorporate all their suggestions in due course. I have received some other comments, but I would appreciate it if others would let me have their observations as soon as possible, regarding the following:
Content - too much or too little - specific items of data you would like removed.
Problems - errors - access difficulties etc.
Additional information - specific data - E-mail addresses - links to other sites - newsletters - associated families e.g. MASHMAN.
Suggestions for improvement.
It is vital that you tell me if you are unhappy with anything I have included - I won't be offended! Likewise I am happy to add information if you so desire. Only when I have received your comments will I be able to open it up to the world at large.
