PDF files from UK GRO
Following successful piloting the General Records Office (GRO) is pleased to offer
PDF’s of historical birth and death records for England and Wales as part
of our established service. If you have Great Britain ancestry, this could be really
beneficial; also, quicker than snail mail. The extended Pilot covers PDF copies
of those historical digitised civil registration records held by GRO (i.e. birth
entries from 1837 - 1916 and death entries from 1837 - 1957). A GRO index reference
is required to be provided with the application. You can find the GRO index references
by logging on to the GRO online ordering service and accessing the GRO online indexes.
A PDF will cost £7.00 each.

Some Mullinax Roots
South Carolina to Texas
Otto B. Mullinax (1912-2000) was a founding member of the International Molyneux
Family Association (IMFA), formalized by its first newsletter in August of 1986
by founder and then editor Wesley L. Mullenneix (1919-1975).
Since the spring of 1998, it had been Otto’s wish that an updated edition of this
book, be co-authored by IMFA. Not resting on the research that led to its publication
in 1982, Otto continued to research, making hand-written notes of additions and
changes in the margins of his “master” copy. It was this master copy he gifted to
From this "master" copy IMFA created a fully searchable 2nd Edition PDF version,
incorporating Otto's changes plus additional commentary by IMFA researchers. IMFA
members / volunteers who have contributed to this project: Jim Molineux, Marie Mullenneix
Spearman, Steve Mullinax and Wayne Straight.
The complete book is available for download in our Resources/Bibliography.

Member MxPedigrees began appearing on the website several years ago as part of the
DNA Surname Project. We are in the process of expanding the pedigrees to include
information submitted by past and present members for publication in MxWorld.
When the project is completed you will be able to upload a GEDCOM file of your Mx
ancestry where it will become part of a searchable all-name database of member GEDCOMs.
Until then, you can add or update your information on this website at

Retirement Message From The Editor
– Betty Molyneux Brown
It is with a heavy heart that I am retiring from being Editor of MxWorld. I became
Editor in 1995, 25 years ago, following the death of our founder Wesley Luther Jacob
Mullenneix in January of that year. Before that I was editor of the MxUK part of
the magazine for 5 years. I have received a lot of support with stories from members
throughout these years, and have seen members come and go during this time. My husband
Gordon has supported me all these years and we have had the pleasure of meeting
up with many members from at home and overseas.
The International Molyneux Family Association is now looking for a new editor, and
we are looking for a Volunteer to take on this satisfying job. The new Editorship
would take place in August 2020 when it would be another year commencing with Volume
35. Interested Volunteers please contact our President Steve Mullinax (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Please consider taking on this job as Editor in the Molyneux cause.
I shall continue to be UK Rep, and distribute the relevant copies of MxWorld when
they have been edited. UK members can still send their input and subs to me.
Who Will Inherit Your Genealogy Research?
is being posted so you can designate who you would like to see inherit your genealogical
research. Example: You can leave your research to a family member, a society or
perhaps a study partner. Print out this will and place it with your family papers.
From time to time we all find ourselves facing an apparent brick wall in our research
efforts. We find pieces of the puzzle are missing and cannot be found. Sometimes
another pair of eyes or knowledge of a little known document resource can break
the barrier and open new connections. If you find yourself in that situation we
might be able to help.
Thanks to Betty Brown for her many years as IMFA Newsletter Editor. Her name first appears on the MXWORLD masthead with the November 1994 issue. Coincidentally perhaps, that was the first issue with graphics on the cover. Betty took the newsletter’s reins from founder Wesley Mullenneix who would pass in January, 1995. Since then, she has gathered, vetted and composed our news and history from all over the world. She navigated the changes from the typewriters and old-fashioned “cut-and-paste” (for you youngsters they used actual “paste” in those days) to electronic editing and distribution in this, she got help from younger relatives, Jim Molineaux, Wesley’s daughter Marie Mx Spearman (who became IMFA President) and others.
Everyone will miss Betty as she now retires as editor. We wish her all the best as she moves to new endeavours!
With this May 2020 issue, and Betty’s retirement, we also retire the publication of the newsletter, first published in August, 1986. Since IMFA’S founding, MXWORLD has been hugely important in gathering and passing on the news and family history to our members. For years, it was the only way we could broadcast information to our worldwide audience. More recently, we have added capabilities for email, an amazing website (thanks to Administrator Jim Molineaux!), and a number of Facebook pages.
How will we communicate moving forward? The web page and Facebook pages will continue. For the time being, we will gather interesting material posted on Facebook and compile that into a quarterly web-based news update. This will go out to membership via email.
If there is a need for a more formally published newsletter-style communication, the ideas and volunteer effort will come from our membership. (Do speak up if you want to volunteer! Email email@example.com ) We have interesting projects going on, like our nascent foray into autosomal DNA research. Progress on that and other fronts needs to be reported and preserved.
Again, thank you, Betty for the wonderful job you have done over these many years, and good luck
Steve Mullinax US312
