Work in Progress
This search engine consolidates all of the Society's currently indexed material. Volunteers are working to consolidate duplicate name records, so all citations for an individual appear in a single name record. In addition, citations for new records are added for an individual name record as they are found. Work is also underway to connect individual name pages into family group pages.
