Brian C. Tompsett has assembled an impressive on-line transcription of the British royal genealogy, borrowing from the "Complete Peereage". Noting differences between the Tompsett website and the Mormon website, I emailed Brian in March 2011 .

Brian Tompsett replied, calling my attention to a number of sources of information on the genealogy of the British royal family. Brian especially cited the large Complete Peerage, but also contributed a number of on-line sources of information. His references are below.


The seed corn for this database was published in 1992 as a GEDCOM by
Denis R. Reid  and available from
 ftp://www.dcs.hull.ac.uk/public/genealogy/royals92.ged.Z
 ftp://ftp.cac.psu.edu/pub/genealogy/roots-l/genealog/roya92a0[1-9]
and this has been made Web browsable:

and also made Web browsable by Birger Wathne via
