Welcome to Twenty Trees

Twenty Trees is about History, Photography, Family Trees, Church Monuments, Art and Original Sources.

The People Menu above takes you to indexes of People by Country organised by Surname. For example England. People pages provide a Biography that includes birth, marriages, death, and life events for the person, their parents, spouses, children, step-children and in-laws. People pages also include link to Family Trees, Ancestry to five generations ie great-great-great-grandparent, Royal Ancestry and the Royal Descendants. Examples: King Edward IV, Richard Westmacott Sculptor and William Larkin Painter.

The Places Menu above that takes you to indexes of Places by Country. For example Tower of London.

Family Trees are Paternal, Maternal and Descendants by Country.

Paternal Family Trees show all descendants with the same male y-DNA. For example Plantagenet Paternal Family Tree with its 36 generations and 477 people.

Maternal Family Trees show all descendants with the same female mt-DNA. For example Emma de Dinan's Maternal Family Tree includes Anne Boleyn and Jane Seymour.

Descendants Family Trees show a Person's descendants to five generations. For example Ralph Neville 1st Earl of Westmoreland and his 464 descendants.

We organise History by Events. For example see Apr 1483 to Aug 1483 when Richard III acceded the English throne.

We have On This Day in History Pages for each day of the Year. For today see here.
