The Tyzacks extend back until at least the 1400s, first in north eastern France and then in England. Three separate unrelated Tyzacks entered Australia in the 1900s, and I am descended from one of these men: from William Baker Tyzack who arrived on the 21 December 1866 with his wife and four children.
Since then different family members have stored photographs, documents, information and memories about the relatives who have descended from William Baker Tyzack. Bruce Tyzack has undertaken considerable research using publicly available records about individual members of the family resulting in his creation of a an extensive family tree. During the process of contacting relatives I have found children have been born in recent times and some do not appear on our family tree – however, as I discover new young family members I pass this information onto Bruce for him to add to the family tree.
The information on the tree is the same for everyone: it gives our name, our birthdate, and if we are married it gives the name of our husband/wife and his/her birthdate, and the date of the marriage if known. Then it lists the children from the marriage/partnership with their names and birthdate – that is all which is given.
Please note that all the information on the family tree (on any family tree for that matter) is information that is available on the public record – that is, it is not confidential because anyone can go to a state government records office and get the information.
Currently I am preparing a special Tyzack anniversary book which will be available for purchase by members of the family. Our family tree listing approximately 200 people will be incorporated within the book.
