This is the genealogy section of the website. The database we have developed is a community database, and includes different family lines, including families not connected to each other. It is based on an interactive genealogical program that allows you to search, create charts and reports, and is the fastest way to explore the data we have collected.
When you click on the button at the bottom of the page you will see a new page that gives you a choice of categories. We suggest you start with “Surnames” and go from there. Notice that in the upper right hand corner there is a “Search” box where you can enter a name. Next to it is a small gear-like icon. If you click it you will go to a “Configurations” page that will let you format the reports you want to generate.
“Tree” will allow you to create charts based on a given individual. When you create a tree, you will see a small vertical menu on the right. On this menu the gear-like icon will take you to the chart configuration page. Each item has a drop-down menu that will allow you to configure what is presented on your chart and how it is presented. In particular if you choose “SVG tree graph shape” you will find that the program output is very flexible – try “full circle” and you’ll see!

Note: To assist family historians who need more detail on sources, we can provide .gedcom files to aid you in your research. Please fill out the form on the contact page and let us know which family line(s) you are interested in and we will do our best to help.
