Bare with me all you sane decent people, but I have to mention this because of the 1% of uptight people here who are addicted to collecting names, "I am a GENEALOGIST not a Name Collector obsessed with managing 1,000s of names" and this is just another tool for me. I am one of the Oatway family Genealogists. Along with other Oatway Cousins around the world, we are researching all the ancestral Oatways, and adding them to a large Family Tree. As well we are linking all the present day Oatways. I believe we are all connected to one couple who lived in England in the 1600s. Prior to that, the name was different, and they either came from France, during the religious Wars in the 1500s, OR were originally "Otways", Norman Descendants whose name was changed through poor spelling. I am also working on my other Family Trees, mainly Canadian based: Conn, Curle, Logan, Pickles, Knox, and others. If you recognize a name as a close relative, then PLEASE let me know and I will gladly transfer the memorial to you. Unlike some here, I believe memorials should be managed by the CLOSEST RELATIVE or FAMILY GENEALOGIST whose is avidly researching that family.
