Family Tree Database

Researching my family tree has been my passionate and primary hobby for nearly twenty years. While I am not a professional or certified genealogist, my research methods apply the same type of recognized principles and standards of proof.  Back in early 2013, I decided to re-build my entire family tree database from ground up.  The main purpose of this effort is to consistently verify each individual one-by-one, and combine it with the tedious process of linking each person to each and every source record that may be found on Ancestry.

 

The clear advantage of Ancestry is the ability to link each individual to these source records, as well as upload countless photos and documents.  The one flaw of Ancestry is that it does not display any person notes or research notes from Family Tree Maker, and this is something that I find frustrating.  With each individual in my family tree database, I include written notes on my research, and transcribe information from every source document.  For the purpose of sharing my research notes, I also have my database available on this website, as well as Rootsweb.  Listed below are links to the all three locations.

 
This version of my database is available on Ancestry.com.  The database is integrated with and linked to sources and images of those documents.  This database contains any photographs that are part of my research.  Due to a feature flaw, my Family Tree Maker research notes on each individual are not available on Ancestry.
 
This version of my database is available here on this website. The database is indexed via search engines, such as Google, and is how a large number of people find this site.  This version of my database contains names, dates, and my research notes on each individual.  This database does not contain photographs or document images.
 
This version of my family tree database is part of the Rootsweb WorldConnect search engine. The database is indexed with millions of other names.  This version of my database contains names, dates, and my research notes on each individual.  This database does not contain photographs or document images.

Generally speaking, everyone in my database is related to me, or I am related to the spouse of that person. If you are curious of my relation to a specific individual, simply ask.  As I bear no relation to those branches, and do not have the time, I generally do not research or record the ancestry of the spouses.
