Chris Lobban’s trees

Lobban-Schefter trees has my family and my wife’s, and attached to mine through “placeholder” people (e.g., farm or parish names) are other trees that I collected. Effective 5 Dec. 2018 I have made this tree private and taken down the mirror site at MyHeritage because there are too many errors in the peripheral branches. Please use the Syd Lobban Collection.

MyHeritage sites

I have added mirrors of my own trees on the MyHeritage site. These are transferred as GEDCOMs from the active trees on Ancestry.com, so again, the images and documentation have not transferred. Most of this work has been done by data mining Ancestry matches, as noted at the top of this page, so caveat emptor!  I update these mirror trees periodically and the dates on the files tell you when they were last updated. The active tree URLs are listed below.

Inverness Lobans was started from births in the OPR list for Inverness and surrounding parishes but then followed down through Ancestry hints.

Miramichi Lobbans was similarly developed from hints as a (so far unsuccessful) attempt to trace the Lobbans living in the Chatham area of New Brunswick, Canada back to Scotland.
