Is this your first time visiting? If so, go to the master index of names. Search for the individual you are interested in finding. If you find that person, then he/she is in our database. The Master Name Index has (in order) Primary Name indicator (*, usually birth name), Name, Individual ID # (in the Adobe version only), Clan ID, birth date and death date. Make note of that person’s “Clan”. Next, go to “The Clan Chart” link below and click on the “Clan” that the person is from. Each Clan has a genealogy report, index of names and an index of places for that Clan. Find your ancestor in the name index (only beginning generations are in the clan charts). Click on that person and you will be taken to that person in the genealogy report. Enjoy!
The “Master Index of Names” below contains all of the individuals in the database. An individual will be listed in this index under as many different names as our sources indicate. Example, for a female descendant: 1) birth maiden name, 2) married name, 3) nick name, 4) name on census (if different). Melcher/ Melkur (the most misspelled Sherbondy) has over 20 versions of his name!
Birth years are only shown for those who have died or who were born before 1930 (“> 1930” if after 1930 and known). If a birth year is blank, that indicates we do not know it (please send update!).
We are in the process of updating our records to show more information on those individuals who were born before 1950 (the date of the currently available US Census records).
