Auvil Family Documents and History

Researching the vast arsenal of links to family websites listed on the website yielded many that now lead to nowhere and for which there are no alternate sites that we can find easily. Some were private sites at hosts that no longer exist. Also, Ancestry and its affiliates (Rootsweb, Family Search, etc.) went through several significant overhauls one of which included the shuffling of domain names and website organization. This means that a ton of URLs changed, effectively killing a lot of links genealogists posted on their websites.

We've included all of the links listed at, dead or not. Those links that are still functional, for which we've found new URLs, or to which we have added content are in italics and marked with an asterisk*.

Hint: Even dead links can still be useful. If you'd really like to see what was on these pages, try going to The Wayback Machine and entering the defunct URL there. This web crawler has been caching web pages since the mid-1990's and just may have saved a snapshot of the page you're looking for.

Do you have a link to a website that contains Auvil ancestors or interesting facts about the family? Email us, and we'll post the link here.
