Everton Pedigree and Family Group Sheets
Historical Context: Started during the Mar-Apr 1979 issue of Everton's Genealogical Helper (also on WorldVitalRecords.com), Everton's Pedigree Chart and Family Group Sheets database on WorldVitalRecords.com was originally called Everton's Root Cellar, and and now contains more than 3.5 million names in more than 150,000 pedigree charts and family groups sheets.
Questions Asked: Varies with individual records.
Why This Database is Valuable: Originally gathered through user-generated submission via advertisement in Everton's Genealogical Helper, this collection displays the archival efforts of thousands of genealogical enthusiasts, all who are trying to connect with their relatives across time and space. The records within this collection may not be up-to-date to present day research, but they are believed to be up-to-date as of the date of reception of the individual record. All records have this date stamped on them. Many of the pedigree charts and family group sheets contain documentations and sources, although others simply cite the information collector, or the person who is sending in the material. Pedigree charts and family group sheets within this collection range in date from fourteen and fifteenth centuries (information on the charts, not the charts themselves) to the present.
Next Steps:Upon finding a relative of interest within the database, look for sources on the sheet. If those are not available, or in addition to recording all information from the sheet, look for the contributor in the white pages, or via Google. They may still be working on genealogical endeavors and would appreciate your updates to information. They may also have further updates that could clarify the information on the sheets.
