Cullen Families of Nottinghamshire Part1 (A-J): These tables are by no means complete and represent an attempt to integrate several sets of source data into one collection arranged by family. They are the result of ongoing research in the indicated areas and are being posted as they become available. I will be working myself to put all the information I have available into the family groups but please consider these pages a community workspace. Anyone can make a contribution or discover a missing connection. I'm sure there is even information from other areas of this site that may have been overlooked. Feel free to forward any information or clarification for inclusion on this page.
