Welcome

...to the Carter Family History pages, which attempt to set out some of the information that I and my brother, Brian, have accumulated over the years. At the end of 2006 we decided to try to get some of the information down in an easily readable format by breaking it up into various articles, rather than trying to tell the whole, vast story. However, this didn't prove very fruitful, so we've changed tactics and are now intending to add random information, as and when we discover it, or when we get round to sorting through the masses of information we collected previously. If you have any information that you can add to anything you read, please email us with it.
