Midgley Gedcom Page.
Over the last few years many contributors to the Midgley Web Pages  have developed  a variety of methods to store their family trees [pedigrees].
One of the more concise methods has been to use family tree software e.g. 'Family Tree Maker
', Ancestry.com, or the freeware 'Personal Ancestral File' [PAF].
I find the latter to be intuitive and very adequate, exporting  the data in the form of a 'GEDCOM' is a few clicks of the mouse button.
A Ged or Gedcom file allows others to import and share the data on their own Gedcom compliant family tree software. For this reason I have started to collect these files together which can be downloaded from this page.
If you have any Gedcom files of your own to share please email them to the contact address at the bottom of this page so that they may be included.

To download the free Personal Ancestral File [PAF] go to  Family Search  fill out your details then click on the 'Order/Download Products' tab and  then 'Software Downloads [free]', choose to download PAF 5.0 or later version. If not contact me for a copy.

Personally, I have endeavoured to omit any living individuals from my submissions although some people work on the 'hundred year rule'. Thus before 

exporting I would suggest you copy your file and modify it if you intend to share it with others through this site [again PAF makes this easy]. I look forward to some of your submissions.
In this way we may be able to begin the task of linking the various branches of  the Midgley families together, collectively this is not an insurmountable challenge........
