ABOUT THIS SITE...

This is my blog chronicling my ongoing genealogy and family tree research. A second static site called Blythe Genealogy is my genealogy database of approximately 80,000 individuals, including sources, documents, photos, etc. This database consists of the highly sourced main branches of our family trees.

We do have a master database of 125,000 individuals (including distant collateral lines) that is not published because it requires more sources and cleanup work.

I'm a wife and mother, with a wonderful husband and two great 'kids' who are now young adults, and we live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada - in the great city of Chilliwack, to be exact (one hour from Vancouver).

Empty Nest Ancestry and Blythe Genealogy are websites designed to make all of my genealogy research available to others at no charge. I'd like nothing better than to promote this as a free exchange of information for all genealogy researchers.

It is important to keep in mind as you explore this site that I make no guarantees. My entire body of research is here, including speculations and unsubstantiated information. All information is only as good as the sources cited. Any speculations are clearly stated along with my reasons for them.

MY FAMILY HISTORY

My family's genealogy is mostly French and French Canadian.

Originating in France, both my father's and mother's branches were original settlers in Canada.My father's family immigrated from France to Quebec sometime in the 17th century, with my father's family living mostly around Beauce and Lac Megantic.

My mother's family immigrated from France to Nova Scotia on the ship 'Satisfaction' under command of Peter Butler and in company of Sir Thomas Temple in 1657. These original settlers along the Atlantic became known as l'Acadie (the Acadians). My mother's maiden name is Melanson and she is directly descended from Pierre (dit Laverdure) and Priscilla Mellanson, who are on record in London with their children prior to making the crossing.

MARK'S FAMILY HISTORY

Mark's family's genealogy is varied and fascinating, including Welsh, French, British, Swedish, Danish, Canadian, Spanish, and numerous others.

On his father's side it includes Welsh Quakers who immigrated to America at the time of and some with William Penn. From these Welsh Quakers is his family's royal connections with several of his multiple great grandparents having been Kings and Queens of England. As a result of the royal lineage, his family is linked to every nation that ever married into the British royal family.

On his mother's side is Swedish and Danish ancestry as his great-grandparents immigrated to America in the late 1800's and early 1900's from Sweden. Shortly after, they settled in Saskatchewan, Canada as a result of the promise of free workable land on the Canadian prairie.

BLYTHE GENEALOGY DATABASE

My Blythe genealogy database is part of this site and is easily accessed through the upper menu.

This is where all specific data, relationships, images, documents and sources are available for free download. Don't leave this site without exploring it first.

There is true treasure there.Weave all of this together with sometimes humorous, scandalous and completely fascinating stories of ancestral family members and you have this site.
