Follow Friday - Australian Familysites - Gates - McEvoy - Maloney Family Tree

"Don't judge a book by its cover."

The plain appearance of this site, Gates - McEvoy - Maloney Family Tree, does not give an indication of the information on the site and the ease with which one can access that information.

 I came across the site when  I was doing a Google search for the McEvoy descendants of my convict ancestor, Elizabeth Phipps

The site is published using Darrin Lythgoe's program TNG (The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding.)  TNG's advanced search capabilities give lots of options to access the information in the database. Although this site does not use a lot of the features of TNG it demonstrated that the program can be used at a basic level and, when one becomes more adventurous, it provides scope for lots of embellishments.
