Main Title:  Tyrone Thompsons / Sussex Spencers

This web page is a portal to the known ancestors of Mr. T. T. Spencer of Duncan, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.  The information is presented via surname descendant lists, with links to indivudual family group sheets, and minimal source references; you can read about the details here.  I also have my genealogy in a professionally-designed online "TNG" database here.

One of the most rewarding aspects of doing family research is meeting people; it would give me great pleasure to communicate with you regarding questions about the website, the software created to run it, or if you think we may be related.

Be aware that these pages are designed to be viewed on a computer monitor with 1280 x 1024 resolution or better.
