The aim of The Willis Tree website is to gather together research and remembrances relating to the history of my family.
It’s a history that’s rooted in the English county of Kent, particularly around the coastal town of Dover. From there the family has spread across the globe so that today there are descendants living in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA.
The information, images and memories presented on this site come from numerous sources, including a large number of cousins and fellow amateur genealogists whose own family trees interlink with mine.
I’ve been researching my family history since 2008 and it’s a journey I find fascinating.
I sincerely hope that the information on this site will help you discover your ancestral roots and rediscover your living relatives!
