Greatrix-Thacker Family Tree Website












This website is an online reference for the family tree of my own and my husband’s families. It is a work in progress with many links, lives and questions still to be discovered and answered.


I joined and got the basic starts and documents from there but soon realised it was so easy to follow false hints on there and go completely off track if you didn’t triple check the information, and I really wanted to ensure we were following the true lines (as much as anyone can ever be sure!) This was particularly crucial when I found ancestors that were gypsies/travellers and the complexities that come with that. There is also a strong military background in my husband’s family and a link to Ireland in my own. I also have Scottish DNA which I’m still trying to find! Just to confuse matters my husband and my own trees are linked though our 4th great grandparents!

The site is, as said, a continual work in progress and I hope to add many more features over the weeks, months and years to come. I hope anyone who has come across it whilst searching their own family tree will be able to gain some information from what I have collected so far and if you can help with any of the questions you come across within the site, please do get in touch with me at, and if we happen to share any part of our ancestry we’d love to hear from you! 

To view the list of people in our tree click on the ‘People’ option on the menu above. You can then view individual records by clicking on their unique ID numbers to the left of their name.
For data protection reasons we have only included very basic details (already freely available in the public domain) of those relatives still living, except where we have their consent to add more details. 

Thank you & enjoy.

**29/09/21 Due to recent technical issues with the former software I used to create the site I have to do a redesign on every page (over 3000!) so please bear with me during the transition period. Some pages will display as the old design, but all links should work and the site should remain functional. Please let me know if you have major issues whilst we are updating the pages**
