Primarily the work of Andrew Kevin Kelsall Pearson, and hosted on David & Valerie Kelsall's TCB website - this site went offline in November 2011.

I managed to find all the pages on the internet archive, and the links to the pages appears here below. I will catch up with Andy and see if he wishes to have the TCB pages archived here on I believe he wishes to update some of the information.

Note that one page, "Kelsall and the Society of Genealogists" did not have a link on the original contents page, and I have inserted this at the bottom. This page covers a number of lineages as described in the book of Kelsall FH in the Society of Genealogists in London (KELSALL MSS ref.: FH/KEL). At some point in the future I will put up a scan of the two volumes here at

For now, here are the archive links off the contents page (the links on the archived pages will go to the other archived pages also):

Hi... these archive links aren't working because of a file called "Robots.txt" - can you tell me if there's another way to access them please?

Oh darn.

It looks as if someone has snapped up the domain name, put a park (and robots.txt) on it.

I will have a look and see if I saved the pages - or if anyone else has, please let me know - and we will reconstruct an archive here somewhere.

Unfortunately, I did not get around to creating a back up of the site.

I have emailed to see if we can obtain access to the archive, even if temporarily, to create a full back up here. Creating the back up here on this website was always the long term plan, but I am about to switch hosts and was putting it off until after the move.

Fingers crossed we can get access to the web archived pages.

I have not received any reply from them, but I have left a message on the message board to see if there is any way we can access these old files, even if only temporarily, so we can re-archive them here.

Fingers crossed, we live in hope.

In reading the wayback FAQs, this does not look promising:

This means that sometimes, while using the Internet Archive Wayback Machine, you may find a site that is unavailable due to robots.txt (you will see a "robots.txt query exclusion error" message). Sometimes a web site owner will contact us directly and ask us to stop crawling or archiving a site, and we endeavor to comply with these requests. When you come accross a "blocked site error" message, that means that a siteowner has made such a request and it has been honored.

Currently there is no way to exclude only a portion of a site, or to exclude archiving a site for a particular time period only.

When a URL has been excluded at direct owner request from being archived, that exclusion is retroactive and permanent.

Although, perhaps this is a little more promising?
How can I get a copy of the pages on my Web site? If my site got hacked or damaged, could I get a backup from the Archive?'

Our terms of use do not cover backups for the general public. However, you may use the Internet Archive Wayback Machine to locate and access archived versions of a site to which you own the rights. We can't guarantee that your site has been or will be archived. We can no longer offer the service to pack up sites that have been lost. We recommend using the Warrick Tool. Please keep in mind that this is a third party and we can not promise results.

Can people download sites from the Wayback?

Our terms of use specify that users of the Wayback Machine are not to copy data from the collection. If there are special circumstances that you think the Archive should consider, please contact info at archive dot org.
