My modus operandi

I am retired and list my occupation now as a Flâneur - a person who walks the city in order to experience it.

I am not a genealogist. I am not a researcher. I am an aggregator.

Although this has and will upset some relatives, while I respect privacy issues, you can see where I am coming from by reading about this issue on the Family Tree Page.
Everyone will be better informed if they take a twenty-first century view the discovery of living relatives. In my view!

I am the other idea. I hope you'll grasp but not fall in love with my idea in building this site now that you have read this far.

How much time have you spent on your ancestry?

I am all about this mission. It seems clear to me that the Sellecks who came from Devon are my direct ancestors. It is also pretty clear that the Sellecks from Somerset tended to emigrate to the United States. I cannot find a link between the two. So "Are you a relative of Tom Selleck?" is often asked. The answer I give is that we probably are but I cannot prove it. Can you?

  • Selleck.
  • Johnston.
  • Allan.
  • Wardle.
  • Morris.
  • Robins.
  • Howden.
  • Pask.
  • Brown.
  • Down.

You may or may not be better off but you will be better informed. The experienced researcher is likely to have found additional common ancestors. This is what I want to find out!
