Guild of One-Name Studies

A collection of lineage-linked sourced genealogies from the Guild of One-Name Studies.

Community Trees

A collection of lineage-linked, sourced genealogies for specific communities and time periods. These are merged from compiled and original source records to identify the community genealogy. Records include specific source data, and most are part of extended pedigrees and family groups.

Oral Genealogies

Oral Genealogies are spoken lineage-linked genealogies from localities throughout the world. Many localities have no written records and oral genealogies may be the only records available for genealogical research.
