My Appleby Related Families is my entire database of over 3,800 relations by blood, marriage and adoption.  Those persons who are still living are represented by the symbol "Living." Other specific information is excluded to protect the privacy of living persons.  You can navigate through the entire database by relation.  You can also search by surname and select from a list by other detailed information about that person.  Many different surnames are included. The software used to prepare the web pages is Legacy 5.0 by Millennia.  The software used to manage the database is RootsMagic 2.04a.  If you find any errors, please let me know.
