For a long time I had considered the idea of researching the Rossiter family
history, to create my own family tree. However, I was put off by the
knowledge that others have already done an enormous amount of research
and that there was no point in duplicating it.
Then it hit me! The web is the ideal medium for a family tree, in fact,
a Virtual Family Tree. Because of its ability to link information, anyone,
anywhere in the world can join in or contribute. Each person in the
tree has a single page with hyper links to each of their immediate family:
parents, spouse and children. Using the links you can trace up, down
or across the whole family.
I have therefore set up www.rossiter.net as a starting point for
any members of the Rossiter family, world-wide to include their own information.
I will include links, free of charge, for anyone who has created pages
of their own.
Initially, I am most interested in the Wexford Rossiters as I am one
of them. However, I will add information on other branches of the family
if asked to. My hope is that eventually we will have most of the family
worldwide included, with the possibility of getting from any member
to any other using links.
Please let me know if you like the idea and would like to join in. I
have provided the starting point and my immediate family information,
it's up to you to provide the rest.
