Families & Surnames

I have combined the surnames of interest for each researcher, instead of listing those individually; so please use your browser “find” function to find all listings of a surname.
These addresses were checked in January 2012, and invalid ones removed in February 2012. If you discover a non-working or non-responsive address, please let the county coordinator know. Also, the best people in the world make mistakes, so check sources and verify conclusions yourself.

The old website had some old files which were actually copied from the RootsWeb mailing list and message board for Orange County. Those postings are best left in their original locations. Please search those sites for any surnames of interest. You can find links to those sites on the Queries page.

Compiled family genealogies are not the best source of information, so please be careful, although people can benefit from comparing sources and conclusions.

RootsWeb has a service called FreePages available that people can use to post their own family trees for others to see.

Scans and transcriptions of source documents are certainly valuable resources. Please contact the county coordinator about those.
