Southall

Family Genealogy, Research and Records


I originally started this site as the Southalls in America web site on angelfire. It grew too large, they took it down. On this site, I have put back all of the information that was on the angelfire site and added more records. My aim was and is to share information on the Southall family and their descendants that I have researched and that has been shared with me by other researchers.

I refer to this as "my site" but it is by no means the product of only my efforts or my research. This site is the result of the combined efforts of a few people dedicated to their Southall research who were willing to share the information they have in order to help other researchers -- I call them my "genealogical angels". Please see the contributors page to view some of their names. My thanks to all of the people who have contributed to this site in many different ways -- by sending records to me (by both e-mail and regular mail), copying, transcribing, proof reading, scanning, etc., and those who help by letting me know about errors they may find on the site.

At the present time, most of the records and information on this site focuses on the white Southall families in the United States (since that is mostly the information that I have). You may find some other information here; however, my Southall family research goal has been to trace the descendants of the Virginia Southall Families (beginning with Dasey and John Southall of Charles City County, VA and William of Amelia Co., VA), which has resulted in a mass accumulation of records and information. I'll put as much information online as I can to help other Southall researchers.

As with all genealogical research, all data and information should be verified with the original source whenever possible.
