MOXON SOCIETY FAMILY TREES THEN AND NOW

 FAMILY TREES COMPILED BEFORE 2010

 Before 2010, all Moxon Society Family Trees were compiled by John Moxon Hill (JMH). 

JMH began to compile the Moxon Society Family Tree charts in the early 1990s, when the kind of genealogy software that we now take for granted was not available.  He used a custom computer program that was quite restricted in its capabilities.  The program was limited to a maximum of 255 people per tree, a tree size not more than 12 sheets in width, and no more than 20 generations (three sheets deep). That was  why the Moxons of Silkstone MX27, MX26 and MX15, were produced as separate interlocking trees, for example. 

The sheets for each Tree are labelled with the tree reference, and a page and letter reference. All sheets numbered 1 form the top row, with 1A on the left. Sheets numbered 2 form the second row, with the letters lining up vertically. If there is a third row (as for MX01) then those sheets are numbered 3.  Where a sheet would not contain any information, it is not supplied e.g. there is a sheet MX14 sheet 1D, but no sheet 2D.

THE CURRENT MOXON SOCIETY FAMILY TREES

The JMH tree charts reproduced here are of course now out of date.  Indeed, some may contain inaccurate information.  They have been superseded by more accurate and detailed trees and some have been merged together.  The current Moxon Society Family Trees are stored and maintained on Ancestry.com and all Moxon Society members can be given access to the particular trees that they are interested in by contacting the Research Co-ordinator.  A list of all of the Trees is here: Current Moxon Family Trees (2018) .  An index of everyone contained the Trees is here: Persons Index.

The JMH Tree Charts are available here for download.  Their value is in their historic use in examining how the Moxon Society Family Trees were originally compiled.  As the number of individuals in the Trees grew far beyond those initially compiled, John’s numbering system for individuals within Trees was generally abandoned.  However, his original numbering system used to identify individuals in his trees often remains the easiest way to refer to individuals nearer the top of Trees when discussing possible tree mergers.
