Hi my name is Thomas D Camp Jr. I have developed this web site to share with all those of the same genealogical interest. I have gathered information for some years and compiled a part of it into a program named "REUNION 8".
The upper left side of this page in blue is my direct Ancestors and will open links to THOUSANDS of documents on my web site or use the index on the top left side for an individual name search.
ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THIS PAGE IN GREEN ARE LINKS TO .pdf FILES, I HOPE THEY ARE HELPFUL.
NEWLY INSTALLED: "Camps of Nazeing Database", this is a very large data base compiled by John Garbutt of the Nazeing History Workshop. The data base was converted to .pdf format which is easily downloaded and can be enlarged. Many thanks to the Nazeing History Workshop.
NEWLY INSTALLED: A file named "Camp Genealogy" was donated by Retha Spence, it is 8 pages in .pdf format. This may fill in a lot of blanks in your family tree.
NEWLY INSTALLED is a link to many "Transcribed Wills" most of which I acquired while in England. They are in a .pdf format and easy to download.
The information gathered has come from many web sites, books, resources and relatives, some of whom was unknown to me prior to starting this project. My special thanks to Doris, my cousin (previously unknown) who has provided much data, photos and insight to our family ancestry.
In June 07 I took a trip to England and spent a few wonderful days in The Essex area and spent considerable time at the Essex Record offices in Chelmsford and Harlow as well as in the London Guildhall. These are great Repositories and I was able to find lots of wills, Parish Registers as well as other documents related to our Camp family. I rented a car while in the Essex area and visited the Hunsdon, Nazeing and Roydon areas relative to our ancestors. This country was beautiful and worth the visit. While there I contacted a local historian David Pracy whom is co-author of two books written about the Nazeing area from the first century BC to present time. A special thanks to David who gave me a guided walking tour of the Nazeing country side and showed me the houses formerly owned by the Camps of Nazeing and the All Saints Parish Church as well as other historical places of interest. This country is rich in history as evidenced by his books. I have posted some of the photos from my trip in the photo gallery. I hope you enjoy them.This is a partial list of books that contain information on the CAMP family genealogy
