Surnames (New Site)
to The Vaden Family Research Center.
My name is Charlie Vines and I am the administrator of this
website. I am not a direct descendant of Delaney Dodson "D. D." and Mickey Austin "Micha" (Blankenship) Vaden.
began researching her family in about 1998. I was able to trace her
line back to D. D. but then hit a roadblock. I then began researching
the Vaden family at large hoping to break down the roadblock. Although
I have met many Vadens over the years and added many Vadens to my
database, I still have not found the connection of her family to the
larger Vaden family.
Feel free to explore as much and as long as you like.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS SITE
purpose of the Vaden Family Research Center is to provide a centralized
location for storing or linking information that is related to the
Why such a focus? Good question. I have found in my research that there
are Vaden`s in multiple countries, states within the U.S.A. and in
multiple counties within each state. Then there are wills, obituaries,
cemeteries, photos, biographies, census, etc all over the web. My goal
in developing the Vaden Family Research Center is to provide a place
where data from all over the internet (and other sources) can be
linked, thus saving the researcher time in his/her research. Also, if
the reader desires, he/she can contribute information to this site. All
contributions will be properly sourced.
understand that I have not been able to verify all of the information
that is found on this website. I try to verify data from new
contributers as well as I can. Once I become somewhat
that their research is basicly sound, I will contribute their work more
freely. Even then there are changes for errors in all
(mine included). ---PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, VERIFY. ---
The reader is welcome to challenge
found on this
website. However, to do so, the reader MUST provide sources to support
his/her claims. The webmaster has the final decision on whether data is
modified. If I choose to keep what is already online in this site, I
will usually add the challenge to the site if it is logical and
sourced. This will allow all visitors to determine for
what is accurate.
HOW TO USE THIS SITE
will notice two "Surnames" links above. The first link is an old file
with data collected over the years. The second link is to a new
database that I am building. I have found errors in my work that I wish
to correct, plus I want to reformat my data. Thus, the rework. The
first link will no longer be updated. All updates and new additions
will be in the new site.
I considered starting my own query board here, but decided not to.
There are two online query sites on Rootsweb that can be used. They are The Vaden Family Message Board and The Vaden Family Mailing List. I
recommend both, but my preference is the The Vaden Family Mailing List.
Postings to the Message Board are also added to the Mailing List. With
the mailing list, the subscriber will receive notification of
all postings to the list.
Please let me know if the reader is aware of another source of posting
queries that you think is worth considering.
Participation can occur in five ways:
1. To inform me of errors in the data posted (please provide sources;
"Because I said so" is not good enough).
2. To provide additional information on a person or family.
3. To contribute your family`s information to this project.
4. To contribute date in any category above.
5. Provide sources that provide additional support for information. For
example, if a person tells me that he/she saw some information in an
obituary, I would state that the source is that person. If a person
sends me a copy of the obituary, I would list the obituary as the
source and state that the obituary was provided by that person.
will not be considered that is not sourced. As well as being
ameteur genealogiest, I am a family historian; therefore, I am
interested in verifiable information. I give due credit for all
and 'ya'll come back now, ya hear'
