The family tree of James Smith in Scotland since 1685

This interesting chart, developped by Serge Benedetti and largely based on the data kindly provided by Howard Geddes [1], shows the family tree of our ancestor James Smith (1821-1917) [2], the pioneer founder of the Canadian branch of our family, from his great-great grandfather William Smith (1685-?) on downwards.


26.1.2012 - extensively updated, with:

  • much new data;
  • a number of minor corrections;
  • supplementary documentation throughout, indicated by a red indicator in the upper-right-hand corner of a given square [3]
  • the following colour scheme to indicate the degree of certainty of the data, in descending order of probable accuracy:
    • black: certain, very probable or probable - provided by Howard Geddes;
    • light red: conjectural, but based on data in the IGI [4] data base and/or in the Ancestry.com site, and coherent with the other elements;
    • brown: very conjectural, but based on data in the IGI data base and in the Ancestry.com site (in the McKinnon and Poulter family trees);
    • green: very conjectural, only based on data in the Ancestry.com site (in the McKinnon and Poulter family trees).
