Hello, I'm Des Gander. I was born in London, England in 1946. Soon after our first daughter was born in 1981, my wife Rose started to attend evening classes on the subject of 'Family History' to help her research her family name of POTTER. One evening she couldn't attend and asked me to sit in for her and take notes. I've been hooked on the genealogy drug ever since. (more »)

As I explain in my Site Policies section, you'll find no actual family trees on these pages other than my own line. However, I've included some fairly extensive records which may help you if you have GANDER / GANDAR forebears and if they don't, then please contact me and I'll help if I can.
