This genealogy data set identifies many Slade families who apparently are not connected to any of the 6 major Slade branches in the USA. We have attempted to identify as many of their descendants as possible and included them in this genealogy. We have not intentionally included any details about any living person. Only their names might be shown as children of their parents.
You can learn more about the six major branches under the Slade Branches in USA tab above.
We have identified several "end of line" brick walls for whom we have not yet identified their parents. You may find them linked under the "end of line" tab on the menu bar above.
An detailed study has been made of the many Slade families in Virginia since Colonial times. They can be found under the Virginia tab above.
Much of the information contained herein has been gleaned from public records, historical books, land and tax records, wills, census, family bibles, letters, documents, recollections of old timers and correspondence with other researchers. This database is an ongoing project. Information will be continually added and updated as it becomes available. Readers are encouraged to contact the compiler listed below with updates and changes to their family information so that the underlying database is kept current.
Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about any of the people in this database or if you can add more information about any of these people or their families.
When a date is preceded by a 'c' or 'circa', it implies that the date is not exact, but within a few years, such as might be assumed from census age, and similar sources. If the date is preceded with 'est' or 'say', it means that the date was estimated based on an educated guess, using any clues available. Be aware that these dates might be off by a decade or more, and are only used in order to establish a reasonable time line of events.
The Slade Surname DNA Project provides an opportunity to verify which branch you belong to and to confirm suppositions of conventional research methods. This study has been instrumental in proving several connections in this dataset.
