Welcome to Coleman TreeViewer on Rails
The site will allow anyone to browse the Coleman family tree, and registered
users only to make alterations and add new information. It is similar to our companion site for the Britten family tree which can be accessed via http://tinyurl.com/brittenstree
The database has just 5 principal tables, which are inter-linked. A good place to start is the latest
Coleman descendancy chart, which opens in Adobe Reader - use its Marquee Zoom and Hand tools to zoom and pan the chart. Then continue from whichever list you like from the links in
the Main Menu below.
