ABOUT THIS SITE

ORIGIN: Available on the web since December 2001, this website was most recently modified on February 6, 2014, and will continue to be improved as thirty-six years of research progresses. Click here for a list of recent updates. The Acree Surname DNA Project, initiated in August 2006, achieved its most recent accomplishment on November 1, 2014. Click here to see the project's history.

CONTENT: The site focuses exclusively on my ancestors (direct lines) and those of my wife, beginning with our grandparents. Siblings of our ancestors are excluded unless they, too, became ancestors through inter-marriage of cousins. Former and subsequent spouses of our ancestors who did not become ancestors themselves through their own children are listed separately on the Other Spouses webpage.

MECHANICS: These webpages were written in HTML on an IBM computer using Windows and Internet-Explorer software to accommodate other systems, browsers, small screens and low-speed connections. The scanned photos, maps, background designs and other graphics were fashioned with Paint-Shop-Pro. The original family-group, index, surname and pedigree pages were generated by the Gedpage utility from a Gedcom file produced by Family-Tree-Maker. The pages, after extensive cross-referencing, were uploaded to the ISP server with CuteFTP. Visitor statistics are kept by Extreme-Tracking.

CONTACT: Queries and comments via e-mail are welcome. Your help in finding elusive ancestors introduced on the Unknowns page would be greatly appreciated. When you write, please type the address below, without spaces, in your "to" line and include the word "Genealogy" in your subject line to assist the mail filter. A GUESTBOOK is available for those who would prefer to comment without requesting a reply.

Thank you for visiting our website. Charles Acree
