My name is Colin Houseman and I have created this site using MyHeritage.com to act as a medium for the publishing of data I have collected during my Houseman One Name Study. It is not intended as a definitive family tree and whilst it may be helpful to you as a research tool and secondary data source investigation of your own branches will be your responsibility.
The data is arranged in a number of separate trees in order to make it easier to understand the relationship between various individuals. As the study is intended to cover all worldwide references to the Houseman name not all these trees will interconnect.
I hope you do not get lost in the Houseman forest
There are no entries for the offspring of girls who have married out of the Houseman family, nor for the parents of those people who have married in. Details of a marriage, and any subsequent marriages are included so that deaths can be traced and recorded.
The Study was started in 2009 as an extension of my own family tree research and as such primarily consists of United Kingdom members of the family, although there are also/will be entries relating to America, Australia, Canada, Holland and South Africa. The list of countries will grow over time.
I am grateful to all those people who have assisted me over the years that I have been researching my family tree and take this opportunity to thank them all for their support and patience and for sharing their knowledge and resources with me. Special mention must be made of Gary Houseman; Ruth Houseman, Jane and Ruth Simpson who have become friends as well as previously unknown relatives.
If you have any certificates, documents or photographs that you are willing to share with me to help validate the lives of the Houseman's please use the contact link below and I will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

Our family tree is posted online on this site! There are 2124 names in our family site. The site was last updated on Dec 30 2017, and it currently has 5 registered member(s). If you wish to become a member too, please click here.
The uploading of personal data that I currently hold is now complete.
