to my family genealogy web site. Hopefully you will find something that
will contribute to your own family genealogy research. I have been
researching my family line for a decade or more and feel as though I
have just begun. My database, which you can access below contains
3,568 individuals, and 1,283 families.
primary families that I am researching are Trueloves/Truloves,
Tutors/Tudors, Weathers, and Browns who's origin was in north western
Harnett County, NC. My wife's family, theArenas and Bacarellas came from
Borgetto, Sicily to NYC in the early 1900s, then to Hopewell, NJ.
have a collection of Truelove databases sent to me by other researchers
that contain some duplication, but also have many families that I do not
have in my database. My intent is to consolidate all of these databases
into one database (including duplicates) to simplify searches across
multiple databases for individuals, and place them into a separate set
of web pages from my family group to allow you to access and search both
databases from this web page.
based HTML genealogy data base that I provide
links to below takes some getting use to,
to effectively navigate. Nevertheless, there
is quite a bit of information available to you, and I would very much
appreciate your comments, corrections, and suggestions.
The database is a work in progress, so you may well
find typos, incorrect spelling, and some family member information that
needs correcting. Many people have generously contributed additional
information, and has helped me to improve the accuracy of the overall
genealogy information resides on Family Origins' database, which is used
to generates the web pages containing genealogy information. Therefore I
have no control of how the pages are created.
the "hot links" below (shown
in blue beside a
will take you to a specific web page containing genealogy information.
Be aware that when you click on a "hot link" to find information, such
as the example of viewing my Truelove genealogy records you will click
on "Index to Gene
Truelove (name is
actually Perry Eugene Truelove in database), which will take you to the
beginning of the genealogy web pages (html files) containing records
with a series of names, but not directly to my name. As you go into each
web page you simply page back/forth till you find the person you are
looking for. Once you understand/master how the information is
organized, your ability to find individuals quickly will greatly
increase. You also can use "find/search" feature of your browser to find
specific information on a web page.
If you have
genealogy software, then may want to use the
Download HOT LINK
to down load the entire data base
to your computer desktop. Once you Double Click on
the Download HOT LINK you will get the GEDCOM file loaded into either a
TEXT or WordPad file--whatever filetype you assign to the GEDCOM file
download. If you have not assigned a filetype for GEDCOM Files, then the
browser will ask you to make an assignment. At this point you want to
assign GEDCOM files to ".TXT" filetype. Save the downloaded file
to your desk top, then go into your genealogy software and import the
GEDCOM file by pointing your genealogy software to the file you just
downloaded. It will have the name and filetype of "GENETRUELOVE.GED."
Instructions on how
information is organized. (Tag
lines have a
by them). You might want to
just go directly to the tag lines
now and start your search, then come back to the instructions if you
feel you need to.
- To find Perry
Eugene Truelove, Sr. you would click on the first tag line "INDEX" hot
link, then scan thru the web page till you come upon the name. Names
are alphabetically listed.
- If you are
looking for a particular name, then the second tag line "hot link" is
the one to use. All names are listed in alphabetical order. By double
clicking the name it will take you to that person's information. A
very straight forward process.
- The third tag
line is probably the most difficult to manage, but can be useful if
you are more or less browsing thru the web pages looking for
information in general. Each page is in alphabetical order, and
individuals appear in groups of 50 (this is done for those with low
speed Internet service) which contain spouse, and children with
"hot links" to where you can find more detail. At the bottom of each
page (where to linked to) their is a "hot link" that will take you to
the next 50 names.
- The fourth tag
line is very simple and straight forward. Here are all the SURNAMES
names in my database listed in alphabetical order. Click on the
surname name you are looking for and you will be taken directly to the
page containing that name. Page back/forth till you find the name you
are looking for.
- The source file
(where I found the information) is provided, but needs some work to
get into the proper condition for Family Origins to make this
information useful. Where there are references to source information,
you can check the source file to get some detail of where the
- Tag line six has
already been explained above. You simply double click on it and my
entire database will be downloaded to your computer. Be aware that
GEDCOM files are distributed in TEXT format, so you can view GEDCOM
files with any word processor, TEXT editor, and WORDPAD. My GEDCOM
file is large, and may take some time if you have a slow (low
speed) Internet service.
