Genealogy: William de Radclyffe (1164-1220)
I'm experimenting with posting some random bits of my genealogy research here with the goal of eventually creating a linked family tree on Hive. You can see the index here.
This is yet another individual that is far enough back that the only way you'll find him in a family tree is if there is a royal relationship somewhere. I can tell from my family tree structure that this person is a direct ancestor through my great-great-grandfather's mother on my father's side. Not sure exactly how many generations back as I am too lazy to try to count and the Gramps relationship calculator doesn't seem to want to do more than about 27 generations or so without hanging. Anyway, other than dates, I haven't collected a whole lot of info on William de Ratclyffe except to note that he was High Sheriff of Lancaster.
I use GenoPro to maintain my family tree but I use other programs to generate reports/web pages. Gramps is open source software for Windows, Linux and MacOS that I have been using to generate static HTML reports and is what the info you see below is based on. I also use its relationship calculator functionality as noted above. I've also been exploring GedSite, a program that takes a gedcom file and converts it into html, and The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding which is web based and requires a setup with a web server, PHP and mySQL. Mostly I've been playing around with TNG which is excellent but I'll get back to GedSite eventually.
The chart at the top is an ancestry chart out to four generations from Gramps. The chart at the bottom is a descendancy chart out to four generations as produced by TNG. The index of all individuals I have posted so far can be found here.
